I am home all day with my two children, when I'm putting my little one down, I put my toddler in front of the tv (this makes me feel sad...he doesn't get as much attention as I'd like to give him). Besides, a half hour of crafts then play dough then a half hour of cars or trains, a walk, kindergym once a week....what do I do? It feels like we watch tv for 1.5 to 2 hours a day (in half hour periods) if we don't go out....it is a struggle with the 2 of them.

I understand how that makes u feel ill b going thruvit soon enough. I don't kno do u read to him. U could just find things thst accommodate both of them. U could let the 6 month spend sum time in a walker or play mat while u do something withur 2.5 old

Hi, its a struggle because my nearly 6 month old demands so much attention, he only naps 30 minutes at a time 4 times a day until he is down for the evening around 7. When i'm putting him to sleep, my 2.5 year old is alone....I feel bad because he often says "take care of Caius mommy".
I can only play with him for 20 to 30 minutes at a time, the rest of the time I'm pumping or preparing food or have my little one in my arms :/

Why? I have 2 step boys that are 3&4 and I have a 2 yr old. Trust we don't go out everyday. They have two rooms that they play in. They watch tv if they want. Hey and naps. Try using nap time as a way to spend time both ways. Maybe?
