by amc80 » Feb 11, 2015 Hi all! Well, having B and a newborn is sure interesting. Twice the kids is definitely more than twice the work! B is handling things well. He tries to be helpful, getting me diapers or whatever. I can tell he is concerned about T, but also doesn't want to really show his concern. He's yet to hold him or kiss him or anything. I'm just letting him take his time. MP- I took B to a siblings class offered by the hospital. It was a couple of hours and we practice swaddling, bottle feeding a doll, giving a bath, etc. It was advertised as being for 2-4 year olds, but he was definitely on the young side for it. We would ask him where the baby was and he would point to my belly, but I don't think he really got it. We've tried to keep his life as normal as possible, as well as making sure he still gets lots of attention. There have been a few times where he's wanted me specifically and I am in the middle of feeding or something, and most of the time he is ok with DH doing whatever it is. He's also still going to say care while I'm on leave, because 1) he loves it, and 2) there would be no rest or recovery with him home.
