Hi I'd love to hear from other mum's out there who have both a baby and a toddler? How are you coping? Anyone else struggling to get everyone ready and out of the house at a decent hour in the morning? Or finding it hard to keep up with house work (in particular washing!)?? Just curious as to how you are managing with a having two relatively challenging age groups and fairly close age gaps?? (I have a 6 1/2 month old and a 2 1/2 yr old).

When I had a 2 yr old and a baby I did not cope. At all. Worst year of my life actually.

I have a 3 year old, 2 year old and 8 month old and whilst it's hard it is doable. Organisation is a must

I have a 2 year old and a 3 month old (2 years 3 days between them)
I love it! I get out regularly. Im not as quick on the housework as id like to be but I dont let it stress me out. I tidy every day as we go then after kids are in bed, and clean properly when I can. I have bathroom wipes so the bathroom is easy to do while the kids are in the bath, and I clean the shower when im in it. Washing should be done every day but I tend to do a couple of loads every couple of days -- and with the rain weve had I use the dryer too.
I imagine that when little miss is more mobile it will be hsrder.

Subbing also, my dd will be 16 months when her sister is born and my husband is a shift worker so I am not sure how I am going to cope! I am envisioning 2 years of hell!

I coped pretty well with nearly exactly 2 years between 1 and 2. Due in 8 days with number 3, again 2 year age gap, and I'm sh*tting myself!
Main difference though, being that my 2yo ds is nowhere near how advanced and helpful my dd was at the same age, I feel I'm going to have alot more dramas managing them all
