I am 3 weeks away from going into hospital to have twins and I am starting to really stress about what we are going to do with DS while having the babies. DS is 13 months, He has been really clinging to me lately. Won't sit with his dad at night just wants to lay on me. Is refusing to eat his dinner and we had him down to one bottle but he's now back up to 4 bottles. we had been co-sleeping but had finally gotten him to sleep in his cot only waking once at night but he's back to refusing the cot and will only sleep snuggled up to me.
I am really worried about how he will go while I am in hospital because everything we had sorted out has now back to square one.
On top of that I am stressing about who is going to look after him while I am in the hospital. He hasn't really been with anyone other than me or DH. He sees my mum every day so I think she will be the best one to have him but I don't trust her. She is tired all the time and he is on the move all the time. If he is at her house then I am concerned she won't pay attention to him and her dog. Her dog bites and DS loves dogs so will try and play with him. But i don't trust the dog. My mum thinks the dog is getting better but he can never be better enough for me to not be concerned about it (it's a potential problem I see that I would rather a prevention rather than a cure after it happens) I also don't trust her driving with him in the car. She is not a great driver and I am worried about him being in the car with her. I have been in a car with her and him and I hate it. I don't feel safe at all.
I know I sound like an over protective mother but these are the biggest things I am worried about at the moment. I just don't know what to do because DH wants to be there when I have the babies. Totally understandable but he is the only person I trust with DS. I'd ask my dad to wait with DS at the hospital but he will be working (I have a caesar scheduled in).
I don't know how to trust people with DS. :-( ... It's only a little while i should be able trust my own mother.
