Toddler help with New Baby
Well, we have a new baby in the family and all were concerned about her reception by her almost 3-yr-old brother, as he is very close to his mommy and has indeed been the centre of her world. A mutual admiration society. And now a demanding intruder. As sweet and quiet as she is, she does of necessity have to dominate his mother's time and when he was told that she was 'very hungry' and could not be immediately removed from his mother's breast, he first went downstairs and came back with a large cucumber which he attempted to push into her mouth and when told that she was unable to eat that, her brother went downstairs again and came back with two frozen hamburgers for her.
Perhaps this augurs well.
(This is actually her at 20 minutes old and four hours later.)
