Re: What to do with older siblings

I'm guessing your Mom is your only family option? I would just sit down with her and have a good conversation with her about everything. Express your fears about her being so busy and tell her you are just making sure she can still take your kids.
Or How about a friend? We don't live near family and always have a few friends on call for when I go in labor. I don't like having just one person on call since they could just be busy at the time I call. DH does not stay at the hospital with me after the baby is born though. He always leave once I am in a recovery room. He stops by with the kids once or twice but not for long and I pretty much see him and the kids when I get sent home.
Or look into hiring a babysitter or a drop in day care. Not exactly the best options but they work if you really need someone.
