I have a nine week old and a two a half year old. Did you ever find yourself getting irritated by your older child, especially with the lack of sleep?

Deep down I know he isn’t doing things to wind me up, but I just feel like he never listens and he doesn’t love me as much as before so I just get upset and irritable. Does anyone else feel this?

You're definitely not alone! I have a three year old son and a four month old daughter. He has only just turned three but when my daughter was born I felt like he hated me and was being naughty on purpose. They soon adapt and now he tells me he loves me all the time. I did used to get very irritated in the beginning, but it is a learning curve for us all. Keep on smiling and soon you'll all fall into a routine and it'll be like it has been that way forever.
