I am at that stage right now when I am thinking about baby number 2 and I have quite a few friends who are already there or will be in the next year. I have to admit it makes me feel quite anxious. We are going through the stage with my boy right now when he is quite demanding of my attention and starting to assert his need for control of his little world and has no concept of later.
Experiencing the high needs of a toddler combined with the memories of how much energy is needed to bring home a newborn is leaving me quite overwhelmed. So I have done a little research on how other Mums have prepared and survived the introduction of a new baby to their current baby. Here are some of the ideas I have collated:
Before the Baby Arrives
When Baby Arrives
I hope these ideas help and I would love to hear any other tips experienced Mums can share with the newbies.
