    I think Caitlin is entering the terrible 2's and also jelous of bump too :(

    For the last few weeks she just will not listen to a word we say. If we say no she will keep doing it until we actually physically move her away from what she's doing and then she will scream 'Mammy' or 'Daddy' depending on who moved her and start crying. Then a few seconds later she will stop and go and try and do the same things again!

    Does anyone have any advice on what to do with her? I don't want to shout at her all the time, but she gets me so angry ignoring me and not listening even though she used to. :hissy:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as Im feeling exhausted with her :(

    Could you try the naughty chair/step etc? I think consistency is the key, she may just take a while to learn...

    My Leah (2 years, 4 months) is the same. Sometimes the timeouts work for her.

    Leah now even gets jealous when we look at anything for the baby. I think she is confused because she still doesn't really understand about the pregnancy.
