I have a 5 year old sun and 1 year old daughter. Now as my daughter is growing up, i am finding it very tuff to manage both of them. its really a very tuff time bringing up two children.

well anything worth doing is not always easy. i remember when my two daughters were young (there is 4 years between them as well) and sure it was tough, but wait a few years and they will be able to look after themselves (my girls are 10 & 14)...believe me, the teenage years are way tougher than when they are young!!!!!!!

my 1 year old daughter wants all attention to be given to her only. she doesn't allow me to do any work. i don't know how to cope up with her and my other regular work. please some one tell me ways to keep her busy.

I have 2 children...ages 16 months and 2 1/2 months old. My son, the 16 month old is constantly on the go and getting into stuff he shouldn't be (which I know is normal), and my daughter does what every 2 month old does...cry. I think I'm adjusting to it pretty well, but sometimes I know it can be challenging, and I only have 2! I think 2 is a handful sometimes, especially when they're so close in age, but I can't imagine having more at this time. I think it's wonderful that some moms can handle 4 and 5 kids so easily...I definately know that 2 is my limit.

Yes now you can manage as your daughter is just 21/2 months old as she now just drinks milk and sleep. you will get the heat in another 6 months when she is of 8 months.

oh yes it's definitely not easy taking care of children specially at this ages, my children are 5 and 2 and I'm also having a difficult time trying to juggle my attention between the two of them, but somehow I manage and somehow get thru the day. I was told that it gets easier I'm hoping and waiting for that moment =)

Try five. ;) lol seriously as they get older it gets easier in some ways, the baby will be able to amuse her self more for example and harder in others, she will also have her own "schedule" to manage.
