Terrible Twos

My 2 y/o is starting to push his boundaries. He knows that I can’t get to him to put him in time out if I’ve got the infant feeding on me so that’s when he tries the hardest. Is there something I can say or do specifically, to keep him from getting too out of control?

    Ignore ignore ignore. Behavior that is accepted is behavior that will continue. (Don’t let him hurt himself.... obviously)

    That’s the issue. He wants to play with the outlets or climb over the top of the couch to the window.

    Ah! Of course right! haha maybe go above and beyond to annoyingly baby proof the room that you feed baby? I know a lot of moms will nurse in the toddlers room that is already baby proofed to sort of eliminate that stress?

    Why don’t you try keeping him in the crib while you nurse until he figures out that hey I need to be good while mommy is doing this

    The crib is screened in at the highest setting so it’d be easy for a toddler to escape out of. But I might be able to put him in the pack and play since we don’t use it yet
