Re: Who watched your toddler when you went to have baby?

I was very fortunate to have my parents watch over my little one when we were having our second baby. This was the first time I ever left my little one (He was 2 back then). When I was delivering my baby, I was crying more so because my first one was not near me than the labor pain. But post delivery when I saw my child, he was super calm and happy.

Re: Who watched your toddler when you went to have baby?

We had our babies at home with a midwife and when I was in labpr with #2 we were lucky enough to have a friend who came at short notice and took our son grocery shopping and he fell asleep on the ride home and by the time he woke up from his nap we were all cleaned up and settled with his little sister. If not for our friend we would have just had my husband be with him while I labored with the midwife. I'm pregnant again and not sure what we'll do with #3. Planning to hope a friend/neighbor can take the kids if needed. Otherwise my husband will have to be with them. I'd reccomend a doula if you have no one you'd want to leave with your older child.
