Hi! My two boys were 6 and 4 when my daughter was born. The oldest was a huge help. The younger wanted nothing to with her! She's 3 now and we are trying for number 4. I'm kind of worried how she will react. It will all be fine!

In my experience, the first 6 months of any baby is hard with the lack of sleep and all. But then everyone settles in and it gets a lot easier. I'm sure you will do great. Best of luck. :D
my kiddos are 8, 6, 3 & 11 months.

I have 4 boys and ttc#5 and I have to say the hardest adjustment when my youngest son came 18 months ago was for my now 6 yr old. He was so excited when I was pregnant, but then shortly after his baby brother was born, he became to feel like he wasn't the baby of the family anymore therefore he wasn't going to get attention anymore, or be gramps baby anymore etc. So we continued with the weekly sleepovers at grampys, and we do a special day once a week with each kid that way they feel special and get to have some alone time with just us without their brother around, and the others during that time well they get to spend some much needed time with grammy and grampy

i am 18 weeks with my 11th baby. it seems like the first few weeks are the biggest period of adjust ment, and once you all et the hang of things baby settles right in and on goes life. with several children you gotta roll with the punches lol. i do have older kids who will help me so im lucky there. i just spend as much time with all my kiddos as i can, and try very hard to make sure nobody feels left out and their needs are met. sorry this is way late lol. hope it helps a little.

My first 3 came all at once so I haven't had this issue yet. We are TTC number 4 now so my triplets will be over 2 atleast. I wonder how it will go
