I will have to be home with the babies since the twins will make three under school age for us and we can’t afford to spend 4500 a month on daycare. I’m afraid I’ll lose it. I babysat my nephew while I was on maternity leave with my son and they are a few weeks apart. It was a nightmare and he went home at the end of the day. I’m definitely sad about knowing I won’t be able to give any of the kids the time my son used to get. I breastfed my son until 16 months and had a vaginal unmedicated birth. I’m terrified of getting an epidural or having a c section. I’m happy and I’ll love the babies don’t get me wrong but no one in the family especially my husband seems to understand my concerns. He keeps saying things like it’ll be fun cause we’ll both get to hold a baby this time and it’s like yeah for like 2 weeks until you go back to work and I’m alone with them. And he won’t help at night because he feels like he needs rest because he goes to work and I can nap whenever I want at home. He says he’ll help but I know he won’t. He doesn’t help at night with my son now or when he was little. He can’t handle the crying and my son isn’t a good sleeper. My sil baby went to nicu and it took 4 months before her son was able to breastfeed. I also have no idea where to put them. Our bedroom is upstairs and our son’s is across from us. The other bedrooms are downstairs. I was wondering if I should put a room for them downstairs and have two bassinets in our room or if I should just put beds for all three in the room next to us and put the other furniture downstairs. My son won’t be able to be downstairs alone. I’m afraid the babies will wake him if they all sleep in same room and then I’ll have 3 crying all night.
