Do any of you mummies with toddlers as well as new bubs have suggestions on how to keep your toddler occupied while trying to put your baby to sleep?
I try and put my daughter in her bassinet while she's drowsy and then hang around to pat her if she needs help settling, but whenever I do this my son runs in and yells and screams and wakes her up so I either have to start the whole process again or I end up cuddling her to sleep (which doesn't leave me any time to do any housework/study/have playtime with my son).
I've tried to put a movie on for him, make him a snack, get his drawing materials or playdoh but no luck!! We're all getting a but frustrated so any suggestions would beich appreciated:)
Thanks!!
