Just So You Know
Anyone here willing to share anything about birth, any Godly wisdom.
Hi Eleanor; congratulations. My latest grandchild was born five months ago, and after eight grandchildren, and three grown daughter's, I can say: allow the oldest child to "help" as much as possible. Maybe he can get a diaper or wipes. When it's time to take care of the newborn; try to find alone time for just you, and your son afterward.
You will be exhausted; but if you can get him into the role of big brother (even at two) it will help with rivalry, and setbacks. God bless you
This is amazing advice!!! Glory to God!
Thank you sister! I appreciate the advice.
Hello Eleanor! Congratulations! I am Kenesha and I am married with a 5 year old daughter and 4 year old son and a baby girl on the way. I agree with Diedra Graves on older siblings helping out to avoid rivalry and they will feel included. My little ones are excited for their baby sister to come into this world and I will make sure they help out as much as possible. We are teaching them about sharing and caring for others. My son has actually said he loves everyone even if hey don't love him. My heart was just filled with love because he has the love of Christ. God Bless you!
Thank you and Congratulations to you too!! That is wonderful, it just shows that if we lead them in the way of the Lord, their little hearts will be filled with love. I am having a girl as well. How far along are you if you don't mind me asking?
I have a 3 yr old and a 5 month old. We have friends who also have new siblings, so that helped, but my son loves being big brother. He's in the stage of "do it myself". He helps all the time, diapers, wipes, telling me when baby spits up. 😘I made a snack basket that he could pull out a banana, a bag of crackers, a pouch, etc. That way when I'm nursing he can help himself. Stay in touch when baby comes. We're all here for you. I know how lonely motherhood can feel at times, even when surrounded by friends and family. God bless you sister.
