I have a 15 month old son and twin boys that are almost 3 months old. And I feel like my older son is sort of feeling left out so he's acting out a little more and wants all the attention to be on him. I just need some advice on how to balance taking care of the twins while also giving my older son the attention he needs. Can any one help me?

wow-just the fact that you speak in clear english is impressive! I have seen people with this kind of situation giving the older child responsibilities that are easy-like helping clean up/cook/diaper changing. ask him to bring you the diapers, put toys away-i dont know how his development is-he is walking? how much does he understand? maybe when the twins are napping do a quick activity with him that encourages age appropriate behavior. make him feel like a big boy, and he will probably act like one. its hard-until the twins can play with him in a few months.

wow i'm not sure whether to take that as an insult or a compliment. yes he is walking and is very active. he does understand a little but when i ask him to do things. he feels like the babies are taking away time from him. i try to have him help as much as possible or when ever it is possible.
