Re: Any advice on explaining b****** to my 3yr old?

ODD had just turned 3 when her sister was born. When I would nurse the baby ODD would sit on my other side and we would read books together. She felt like she was getting special time too, and she wasn't bored. That worked really well until baby was about 5/6 months old and started getting too distract-able - then baby would pull off and look at her sister instead of eating. But by that point ODD was used to things and didn't throw a fit when she had to leave the room for YDD to actually eat.
