Dh travels for work so I've been trying to figure out how to do our night time routines alone... I have had to do it for a few weeks now and I still don't really have it figured out but it is getting better.
I try and nurse the baby around 4-4:30, then go and get the toddler from daycare. If the baby is sleeping when we get home, I will give the toddler a bath. If not, dinner for the toddler while I nurse the baby again. Then bath for the toddler with th baby in bouncer or swing or baby carrier, whatever will keep her calm.
Around 7baby gets put down and then it's books and nighttime for the toddler. She's in bed by 7:30.
The struggle for me is that the baby's witching hour is during the 2hours I have to get DD1 fed, bathed and put down. It's exhausting to say the least.
