Ok so despite now being the mum of 3 boys, this is the first time I've actually had two young children at the same time (17.5 years between DS1 and DS2).
So DS2 will be 4 in October and DS3 is 17 days old. I'm struggling a little with what people do when they need to put the newborn down. So if I have to do something that needs both hands and DS3 is not in a wrap how do I keep DS2 from accidentally hurting DS3?
DS2 is a very high spirited high energy little boy. He seeks high levels of stimulation so everything is done at full speed, top of the voice style. He jumps around, flings himself on and off the lounge and just generally moves around like a cyclone leaving a trail of destruction 😏
So how do I put DS3 down on his play mat? We don't have a swing but I'd be worried DS2 could knock it over anyway.
What do other people do? DH is home at the moment so one of just holds DS3 at all times or sits beside him while he's on his mat. But he won't be home forever and I'm looking for ideas on how others manage this so I can may be start putting some things in place for when DH does go back to work.
