Ok so I don't know how many other people have second children (or third, or fourth lol). But I have a 3 year old and an 10 and a half month old. With my first son I was really good with getting him fed 3 solid meals a day, fruits for breakfast, vegetables for lunch, and meat for dinner. But with my baby I get in like one meal a day unless its a good day and I get two. He was born early, and then had colic and he would get really constipated and have tummy aches, so I sorta used that as an excuse. But now he's outgrown the colic and the food doesn't seem to bother him anymore but I just have a lot going on that its hard to fit it in. I work almost full time, and go to school and it just seems like I don't have time. How have you had to change your schedule for your new baby?

Hi Erin. I'm a mum of 3 and can understand what you mean! It is hard and having 3 babies with colic and silent reflux I can empathise with the excuse "it's too hard"! My only question is do you sit at a table to eat all of your meals? This helps. Also to have a strict eating timetable. If you sit at the table (all of you) with bubby in a high chair you can kill two birds with one stone. You all get to eat at once and you are having quality table chat with your eldest! Best of luck xo
