A little advice needed (Part II)...

Who knew there would be a part II because I didn't =) First I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who either posted on the blog, wrote on my fb wall or sent me a fb message. I was overwhelmed with so many encouraging words! Sorry to all those who said they posted a comment but it got deleted. Not sure how that happened!

Anyways, this is Part II of I NEED ADVICE. I posted the question a few posts back, but I kind of threw it in there with everything else to where it could have gotten lost.

I know many of you have more than one child and have the experience of nursing a baby while trying to entertain 1, 2, 3, etc more kids. So my advice needed this time is: How do you nurse one child while trying to entertain another one? Some of you laugh at this question because you are on number 4 or 5 and are old pro's, but for those of us who are "beginners" HELP US OUT =). I have already gotten some great advice from some women, but I am curious what each of YOU reading this do!

Please don't be shy. I was telling Daniel just the other night how inspired I was by all the comments and emails I received on nursing. I can't wait to read about your advice here!

Thanks in advance!



P.S. I have a sick boy who has been running fever for two days. Say a prayer for the little guy if you get a chance. This mommy really wants it to go away!

My oldest was only 11 months old when baby #2 was born. So it was interesting getting adjusted. If I am being honest I did a lot of praying! But back on to your question, I would have Kaylee bring me a book and have her sit beside me so I could read her a story. Or I would just talk to her while Cade was "eating". I would ask her to show me her toys. And sing a song with her. Another crazy thing I did every once in a while was use a sling for the baby to keep my hands free for the other child if needed. Hope this helps.

What about having a special toy or activity that only comes out when you are feeding the baby? That way it keeps its novelty and is sort of like a treat for being good while you're busy...
