If you had a homebirth, with older siblings around.
I guess it's kinda late in the game to be asking this question... but my DD is really excited for the baby coming. She talks about it all the time and she has decided she's going to be a nurse when she grows up (she's 3.5). She wants to be my nurse when I have the baby . Anyhow, DH and I were just talking about what happens if I go into labour during the night, should we wake her up? I definitely wouldn't wake up the 21 month old, I would gladly let her sleep through it, she has no real idea of what is going on. But do you think my older daughter would be upset if she missed the whole thing? Anybody else had this experience?
