Tips for living with two under two?

I'm due with baby number two Feb. 1st and on the 23rd of Feb. my oldest will be 18 months. Are there any tips or tricks anybody can offer for surviving with two kids under 2?

Mine are 11 months apart and the most handy thing I used all the time was one of those material baby slings. You can even pick up your other child while using it, breastfeed too which is especially handy.
and the only other things I can think of if just take one day at a time and try to let your eldest have as much to do with the baby as possible. I was a bit panicky about letting my daughter near the baby because being so young she was a bit heavy handed....but keeping her away would just upset her and she's start acting like a baby to try and get some baby attention for herself.
The cool thing about them being so close in age is that they end up more like twins and develop a very strong bond with each other. Its lovely......All the best
