Hello all! I am expecting my second child at the end of May. I am having BIG fears of my first child feeling sad or left out. I will do my best to make sure he knows that I am there for him and share time with the both equally but going from 100% attenchion to having to share with another child might be hard on him. My son wants my attenchion all the time loves to be hugged and cuddled im his favorite person by far (daddy gets bitter about that). My son will be 20 months when this baby arrives so due to his lack of communication im scared he wont be prepared and be very confused. I am also getting another c-section so the fact I will not be abke to pick him up and be able to run around and play makes me even more sad:( any advice is appricated!View Thread
My mother has this issue she let my little brother sleep with her so long that now he will not sleep in his room. Its super rediculas. He will be 13 in Nov and he sleeps on the couch every night because she wont let him in the bed anymore. She even redecorated his entire room so maybe he would want to be in there. I mean the whole 9 yards bought him a new bed new comforter painted the walls and put up like night glow things everywhere...and to top it off a flat screen t.v. with cable!!!! he still dosnt sleep in there only uses his room to get dressed. I would advise to keep to your guns and get him to be in his room because this situation is awful and annoying I cant even come over to stay the night because he is on the couch and he yells at everyone to get out of the living room so he can go to bed. Good luck to you!View Thread
