I have just gave birth to a baby girl, she's now 2 months old. During my pregnancy, my eldest daughter, who was 2 year old at that time, was able to let go of her pacifiers, bottle and seldom wet her bed at night. After my pregnancy was bigger, she regressed into using pacifiers, bottle and back into diapers at night again. Now, she always do some annoying things when I breastfeed the baby (dumping talcum powder on the bed, spilling her milk, asking for her bottle and yelling when I say wait). I tried getting her out of the bedroom when I breastfeed but she will barge in my room and yell the house down if she's not allowed in. My mother in law tried to distract her, but she refuses to leave my side when I breastfeed. Sometimes she even lies next to her sister, squeezing her against my body. She doesn't do any harms to her sister intentionally, but she would sometimes squeeze the baby's cheeks or played with the baby's arms until the baby cries. I don't know what to do. I've tried lecture, time outs, punishments, and even to spanking, and they don't work. What should I do so that I can breastfeed the baby peacefully and I don't have to be angry with my eldest all the time?
