i find it so hard sometimes. thank god OH does a lot with DS1 who is 2.5. but still sometimes i feel like i cant cope. i hope it gets better soon. DS2 is 2 months. will it get better? DS1 is a typical toddler. sensitive, emotional, talks the WHOLE DAY, super energetic, very athletic, he swings and climbs like a real monkey! sometimes i feel DEAD, deaf, the need to go to a psych ward. i dont let DS1 see it though. but i scream in my head. lol. still i want a 3rd one. lol. pointless thread just wanted to rant. tanx
Lol you are not alone! I have a 19 month old and a 3 month old. It's really tough sometimes especially since I'm doing my second year of uni full time also. Thankfully DH helps me out alot, I'd be going nuts without him lol
We have a 15 month gap here and now the boys are 2.5 years & 14 months .... Unusually I found the first 6 months easy as baby slept like an angel during the day unlike ds1 who was devil baby !!! But since ds2 started crawling and wanting to walk its been a nightmare and showing no sign of getting easier yet as he still isn't walking but yes on the good days I'm desperate for no3
13 month age gap here. My toddler is only JUST a toddler, still a baby in a lot of aspects. Like a PP said, I am finding it easy just now as my baby sleeps a lot. I'm expecting it to get more difficult once DS is on the move. I am also desperate for #3 - I sometimes wonder if I'm mad! X
My 2 are 23 months apart and a toddler and preschooler now (almost 3.5 and 18mo). It gets easier in some ways and harder in others. I would have been dead without my carrier when she was tiny though - I carried my daughter everywhere at 2 months so I could keep up with my son. And I had to BF on the fly while we were out and about. Now at 3.5, my son is no longer napping and has way more energy - and pair that with an 18mo who loves to run away, doesn't really listen yet and can almost match him in energy levels! I'm literally running the entire day. It's definitely the busiest time I've had yet. The plus side is that my son understands more now - he is getting much better at listening, and can play on his own for short periods (finally!). And they are starting to play together a bit! Amazing!
Mine are 15 months apart now 2.5 and 14 months and its got harder since he started walking the past few weeks!
I too thought it was easier for the first 6 months as do just wanted to sleep so I spent a lot of time with dd but now they both want me all the time and cling to me!
I think it's normal I wnt to scream a million times a day! I sometimes think I need to go to a psych ward too!
Like today! Ds is going thru nap transition, so was up at 5.30am n now ready for bed although I won't let him, dd has had a million accidents even tho she is fully potty trained its like she's testing me today! I've had a nightmare but managed to clean the house and have a good sort out of the play room and all my cupboards as it was cracking me up!
All whilst oh has been lying on the couch watching some shit cartoon film with rabbits!!!
I'm soooo ready for me time and bed!
But yes it does get easier! Not every day is this bad some days are a breeze especially if I take them out as they both get worn out easily haha!
It will all be worth it tho and u will get into the routine of dealing with both even when oh isn't there!
