Newborn and Toddler


I'm about to be a mom to baby number 2 in a few weeks and am getting concerned about my routine in the days following the birth. Hubby will not be able to take any time off work as he just started a new job, so I will be alone with a 2 year old and a fresh one immediately after the birth.

Any moms out there have advice for getting through the early postpartum period with 2 littles? I'm mostly concerned with the lingering pain and mobility issues I might have as I had a rough few weeks after my first (but I obviously didn't have a toddler to chase around then). I'm not as concerned about developing a routine a bit later on, but mostly worried about those first few weeks. For those who went it alone, how did you all get through it? TIA.
