    I would hate to be out and about looking after a toddler for the first time. It's much easier to contain them in a home. I would allow her to stay home but build it up before then. After all, it's quite possible your Mum may be required to babysit for hours on end while you give birth to your second. In the weeks leading up to the scan, I would drop DS over to your Mums and go out for 10-15min, and build it up from there.

    I think you're being unreasonable.. I understand not leaving a newborn but this is a bit over the top. You will more than likely be needing your mums help more and more as you get busier. You will want to work on this anxiety because by the time kindergarten/school starts, you would not want to have major problems, with not one, but two children. I believe even if your next baby is an easy baby, you will still feel anxious and do it all the same again. baby steps. start leaving him with your mum for an hour or so at a time. good for him too.

    there will come a time when both babies/kids are a bit older say 2-4 and you will be needing some time to yourself. they do run you off your feet, especially with more than one demanding toddler. good luck.

    Can I ask what the plan is when you are in labour/birthing? If you're having a hospital birth are you expecting your mum to look after him at the hospital?

    I think its time to loosen the grip on your son, his father and his grand parents love him and care for him just as much as you do they will take good care of him and you can have time without him. If this continues I would hate to see the poor guy on his first day of school you dont want him to be fearful when your not around as he gets older.
