When you have your first, your whole world is about loving and caring for that child. When you have a third, the needs of the first don’t magically go away and newborns have needs greater than anyone else. How do you juggle it? How do you make both feel equally important? Simple answer? You just try. You find the moments with the oldest to give them the undivided attention they need for a few minutes. You sneak snuggles with the baby while the oldest is playing contently. You divide and conquer with your partner for one on one time. There is no manual, no how-to that perfectly explains parenting for one vs for two or more. It’s trial and error, try again, change approaches.
