How can i Balance my time between a very active 2 year old and a newborn? I dont want my 2 year old to feel ignored. Does anyone have tips to balance my time between them plus make some time for myself?

Well I'd try to make it like such a fun thing like make you 2yo feel so involved,ask him to go get things for the babys or let them hold the baby (with you there obviously) and maybe when your new borns napping spend as much time playing and having fun with your 2yo if you can get someone to watch you newborn for a few hours every now and again you could have a special mommy and me time with your 2yo but if you them a bit of here and there and make them feel very involved he isn't going to feel neglected at all.as for the time to yourself bit I would love to help but I haven't figured out the answer to that one yet and I only have one 6mo lol



Good luck :)
