Nap time with a toddler and a baby
A while ago now I wrote about how to start a routine with a toddler and I have to say it has worked wonders for us. We are now at a stage where Freddy knows what his normal daily routine feels like and he falls asleep on his own (with one of us next to him) at around 7pm every evening.
Although I still have to breastfeed Freddy to sleep for his afternoon nap I have realised that I have spent so much time thinking 'how do you wean a toddler from the breast?' that I should have just gone with the flow and trusted that things would just work out like they always do :)
We seem to have found ourselves a lovely rhythm whereby I feed Henry to sleep and then Freddy and they lie next to each other sleeping for an hour (and sometimes a bit longer).
Just the sight of my two babies lying next to each other fills me with happiness.
