Toddlers can be very frustrating to parent. They want something, they scream, you give it to them, they still scream. They actually don’t know what they want, so what is it they need? Why the meltdowns? Here’s a hint, it’s something a lot more essential than a new toy or an ice cream.
A while ago, I wrote about how the second pregnancy was different from the first.
Now that the baby is here, I can tell you about what it’s like going from one child to two. My son was 16 months when our daughter was born, so he’s still a young toddler.
I have included some tips I found helpful for introducing the toddler to the new baby. This is my personal story as someone with a partner, so if you’re a single mum, you may have a much harder time with two. Here we go…
Don’t you just hate when your child starts screaming in a shopping center and everyone turns to look at you?

Sending your baby off to daycare can be emotional and nerve-wracking. It’s hard to trust strangers to care for your little one, but at the same time you need to work, get things done and get some alone-time or time with other adults so you don’t go insane.
So, how do you choose a good daycare which will care for your children well? What are the most important things to consider?
