    Default Night shift worries

    DH is on night shift at work, 5 days per week. I am due to have our second bub in 5 weeks. DD is 18 months old and I am a bit concerned about being home alone with the 2 kiddies. I guess my main concern is when bub wakes for night feeds or is unsettled, I really don't want to wake DD but our house is pretty small. Any suggestions or advice?

    I really haven't found it to be a problem, my older kids have always slept through the babies wakes. My DD even co-sleeps with me most of the time and DS2 is in his cot in the same room, basically from day 1, and he has almost never woken her. I always thought she was a light sleeper too.
    Dinner/ bath/ bedtime is where you're likely to need the extra set of hands
