@GM01 I've never been able work out feeding in a carrier, there are tutorials on the net though... There is a baby wearing expo coming up in Perth (I'll find details) might be worth going to for pointers:-) if my DD has to stay in her brace longer I think I'll get back into wearing her.
My toddler has been waking in the early morning, 5am this morning... It's driving me nuts, he's always been a great sleeper!

My dd1 has too much screen time too, but she does get out to other activities and kindy as much as possible, sometimes we have to do these things to get other things done eg feeding etc!!!!
I've never had a baby carrier, but thinking maybe it's a good idea. It's so hot up here in Qld at the moment though and I'm scared dd2 would get too hot, plus I'm quite "round" at the moment, maybe it wouldn't fit!

It's been ages since I posted. DS is almost 8mo now (yikes!) and DD is 3.5yrs. I feel like I'm fairly one top of it all now, it's still a juggle and it's not easy, but I'm used to it now. I think it started getting a lot easier when DS was around 5mo. Despite some ongoing health issues (hopefully it's nothing serious, still doing tests) he's a really chilled and happy boy so I got lucky there! I'm also very fortunate that DD absolutely loves her little bro and he adores her. They both just light up when they see each other, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
DD definitely watches more TV than she probably should, but we also get out a fair bit to play dates, swimming and play group. She also goes to daycare 3 days and when he's well enough DS goes 2 days a week (I'm going back to work some time in May/June).
It's definitely hard when DD chucks a tantrum in a carpark while I've DS on one hip and bags in the other hand! Also when they are both waking at night I feel like a total zombie. All part of the gig though and I'm definitely coping better these days.
So to those just about to have #2 don't worry too much! It does get easier

On Wednesday I felt like I was on top of this parenting a toddler and infant thing. We were at a playground for the toddler and I had to feed the bub. I ended up feeding while standing up and walking around to help DD1. Never done that before.
Then the next day I was changing DD2 and DD1 was playing in her cot. She leaned over the side and before I could tell her to stop she toppled over and banged her head on the ground. Not my most stellar parenting moment.
Right now I am sitting on the couch with a sooky DD1 on my lap rocking DD2's bassinet with my foot.
What tricky things have you been doing?

Are people's babies getting easier or harder?
My DS is so much more difficult and waking more now at 6 months than he was as a newborn.
Thankfully DD is getting much better and having less tantrums and living DS more each day

If I feed him he goes straight back into a really deep sleep where I can't even wake him up enough to get a burp out, but then wakes again a couple of hours later. Driving me a bit crazy!
