I am due in late October and by then my daughter will be just 2 years old and 2 months. I know; they are close together in age, but we will almost certainly only have 2 kids and we live overseas so I can be a stay home Mom. When I return to the states I will have to work outside the home again.
Anyway currently my toddler is 19 months old. How can I get such a young child ready for her new sibling??? She has a very strong personality and thrives off of lots of attention. Is there a way I can spread myself so that she does not feel neglected and resentful??
How else can I prepare for this HUGE event? I'm good on the stroller situation but I'm sure there are many things I haven't thought of.
Please help! I'm starting to think this was a very bad idea!
Thank you so much!
