Balancing 2 children now...

Is anyone else having to remind their spouse that there is another child in the house still too??
Dh is all about the baby it seems like. He keeps saying how he is such a better baby then dd was because he doesn't fusss as much or he will say good morning to ds and I have to have him say it to dd. I think my mom being here has spoiled him in a way because mom is making sure dd is getting lots of attentchion. I think when she goes home today dh will go back to normal. Im gonna bring it to his attetnchion when he gets back from the gym.

Dh tends to focus on DS1 more. I have to say hey why don't u burp baby etc daily. I think its an adjustment for everyone.

DH is doing AWESOME with both kids! I have baby most of the time because he is nursing almost 24/7. I am the one having trouble paying enough attention to DD.

My Dh is "afraid" of tiny babies, so I have a feeling it will be the opposite way around here. When dd2 was younger though up until recently he gave her way more attention than dd1, who has a different father. She has autism too and is a little harder to get close to. Different scenario, I know. I had to talk to him several times and now he's better. He still doesn't tell her he loves her like he does dd2 (which I should talk to him about), but it's much better! I'd suggest mentioning it to your dh-he probably doesn't realize he's doing it.

Once a routine is made, things will fall into place.

Yeah I talked to him about it and I think really once mom goes home we will be good. She spoiled us <3. Not looking forward to her leaving. This morning was my only crying freak out moment since ds was born. However mil comes in two weeks ......

I think my DH will do the opposite. Now that DS is so close to walking and loves playing DH has been giving him SO much more attention. When DS was first born I think he just didn't know what to do with him lol He's not used to interacting with tiny babies
