— Super mom

— @momofdeuce awe thank you. I'm trying, it's gonna take a while to get in a routine cause I'm still hurting really bad. So everybody is off schedule 😞

— @skyy12221 did you have a Csection ? Or vaginal ? Don't rush and go with the flow .

— @momofdeuce thank you and I had a vaginal birth but I ended up getting an infection in my uterus so I got readmitted to the hospital again so for Rylan's whole first week of life I was in the hospital.

— My baby boy is coming home tonight and I'm so nervous on how to handle him and my toddler but girl you're an inspiration! I'm taking notes from you

— @skyy12221 aww sorry to hear that . but glad you're doing better . im sure that was difficult for you . You have help at home ?

— @_sheriee I'm sure you all will be fine! Just carry on like usual cause baby boy will sleep most of the time and so what you usually do with your daughter but make sure to rest and don't overdo it! When I transitioned from 1 to 2 I over thought everything and when I got home it wasn't bad at all! Now I'm transitioning from 2-3 and so far not too bad but I have to give it some time to give a complete opinion lol message me anytime if you need some advice, I'll be sure to try and help and suggest something's that might work for you. 😊

— @momofdeuce yes I'm way better but not completely there yet but it takes time. And it was very difficult leaving my older 2 at home worrying about them cause they both were sick. Yes I have help at home. Hubby, mil, and sil. Wish I had a little more but it'll be ok.

— @skyy12221 , thank you so much!! How did you get your first to adapt? She just saw him for the first time and she was great till we got home. She hasn't stopped her tantrums which isn't her. I put her to bed and plan on having them interact for the first time tomorrow.

— @_sheriee you're welcome and yes prepare yourself for tantrums. My son was fine the first moment but then the tantrums started and lasted for 3 weeks. Hopefully yours don't last that long! Pretty much she is realizing someone else is getting attention but once she realizes he's not going anywhere they will stop. Just prepare yourself for the worse just in case so you don't go crazy. I just continued to show my oldest I still love him and didn't forget about him. Still fed him his meals and put him down for naps, played with him etc and asked if he wanted to help with the baby like get the diaper or wipes or hold the baby to make him feel involved but if he said no I wouldn't force it.

— Will keep all of that in mind while trying to keep my sanity. I appreciate it! ❤

— @_sheriee you're welcome, message me anytime! Take it slow mama you got this!
