Hi Pinky, we are expecting our second baby in February, 2 weeks before our first born son turns 2.  He has always just had mummy and daddy to himself, never been to daycare or left with anyone else for more than a few hours.  He is perfectly happy to be looked after by Nanna, however Nanna is suggesting he start spending the day with her so I can focus on the baby.  I have explained that I do not wish for him to be taken away whilst I care for the second baby as I feel that it is important for him to be involved and to feel apart of the process.  What are your thoughts?  Also as my son is a wonderful little sleeper and having great day sleeps and sleeps all night, what are your thoughts on changing him into a big bed from his cot.  I feel a little reluctant changing him too much when a little baby in the house will be a huge change for him anyway.
Thanks for your time Pinky  smile1.gif
