Adjusting to baby # 3

My babies are my pride and joy and my everything. My oldest son Jayden has been a huge help, he loves his baby sister and brother and is really self sufficient. However, with Jaylyn it was a curve ball. When we first came home from the hospital she had no idea who the baby was and all she wanted me to do was hold her, which I did as much as I could. Thankfully I had my mom and grandma here for a couple weeks to help transition our family from 2 to 3 kids. My mom would watch Jaylyn during the day so I could rest and my husband was at work. Once my mom and grandma left it was a challenge. Jaylyn is at that stage where she gets into everything and so I had to put her in the pack n play while I nursed which she didn’t like. Jayson would normally take about 45 mins to 1 hour nursing which is normal for a newborn but my baby girl was not used to not having the attention on her. She cried many times and so did I. I was overwhelmed, tired and stressed, but little by little I got a routine, I got better at multi-tasking. I try to nurse Jayson while Jaylyn takes her naps and while she eats her snacks and is occupied so she doesn’t cry. Multi-tasking is definitely key. Some days are hard other days are awesome but now Jayson is 3 months old and Jaylyn LOVES him. She says baby and goes up to him, gives him hugs, kisses & even puts the pacifier on him when he cries. I try as much as I can to include Jaylyn in things with the baby so she doesn’t feel left out. Having 2 under 2 has been extremely hard but it has gotten better. I try to be a better mother to my 3 babies and a good wife to my amazing husband every day. I hope this gives you an insight into my world and adjusting to having 3 kids and 2 of them under 2. Much love,
