how will my 3yr old cope with a new baby in the home??
There's 2years 13days between my 2 which i was worried about as ethan was still very much 'my baby' however we made a point of explaining what was going to happen where he would go etc. he also helped daddy build the baby's crib and packed the hospital bags with me. I took him shopping for a toy for his baby sister and he was very excited about bringing it to the hospital. He was besotted with amber the moment he met her (we made sure it was just us and no other family) The next week was difficult but i found sticking to our routine (going out and about, mealtimes and not letting people visit in the evenings) helped and by day 7 ethan was back to normal.I think your age gap will be lovely she can understand more whats happening. Make sure you include her ie. asking her to help. Good luck i'm sure you will all be fine x
