My little boy will be almost 19 months when the new baby comes along. He has never stayed a night away from me and still breastfeeds before bed and twice overnight. He has only just started to let my husband put him down to bed and he has never ever let anyone else put him to sleep (for example have been out for a meal a couple of times and left him with my parents for a few hours. He has woken up but will absolutely not be put back to sleep by them and stays awake till I get back!) I am feeling really anxious about how things will work when I go into labour. I really want my husband to be at the birth, which I intend to be in the pool at the midwife led unit, about 15 minutes drive from my house. Last time round I went into the hospital at 5pm, had ds at 1.04am and wasn't discharged til gone midday the next day. If for example, this was my time scale again (obviously I know it could be any time but just trying an example!) what on earth would I do about my son?! I wouldn't be there for bed time (which might *possibly* be ok if maybe my husband could be there to put him to bed) but then it's the overnight part that I'm most worried about, he gets pretty hysterical if I'm not there to comfort/ nurse him when he wakes. (Know this from times I have tried to get hubby to comfort him instead of me in hopes of cutting some night feeds). He would have a terrible time of it without me there basically. Help!!!!!!! What do I do?!?!?!?!?!
