    Default Are toddlers psychic or something?

    DS (20 months) is super clingy all of a sudden. With everyone not just me, but he wants constant attention and especially to be picked up. The usual tactics of getting him to hold my hand, distract him, put him in the high chair with some food...not working! I'm due with #2 in three weeks. I try to tell him there's a baby in my belly, I'm sure he doesn't get it LOL but it feels like he is getting more and more demanding... ugh how can I fit a baby in when 120% of my time is already being demanded... any reassurances?!

    hi eilonwy, I think this is common for little ones. they seem to notice the change in the dynamics before the new bub arrives. I suggest you need to not worry about the future. once you have the new bub, you will just have to handle each day as it comes. I had three babies under two, so I know you will survive. just a suggestion , have some new toys or some hidden toys, that you can bring out when new bub is a bit demanding and you need to distract your toddler. good luck, marie.

    I think it's the age! My DS is 22 months and he is super clingy. He is literally hanging off me all day every day and cries if his older sister sits on my lap. Like you I'm not too far off having another and I know it's probably going to be a big adjustment for him. Things that I did with my DD when DS was born was to distract her when I was feeding. I'd set her up with an activity before I started breastfeeding, or I'd put on her fave show, or when DS was a bit better at latching I would read a book to her whilst feeding. Like Marie said you will survive, we all bumble through somehow!
