Hi, have just had my 3rd child who's a delight at 2 weeks old, but am struggling with the older two (3 and 5YO) especially when we're all tired after school/nursery and have frayed tempers. Need some quick, easy low key ideas to keep them happy and feeling loved while I'm breastfeeding and exhausted! Thank you

DVD, iPad games (we don't try this at home because we don't have enough iPads), colouring in, craft, story time when breastfeeding?? Sorry, having been there, you'd think I'd be able to come up with ideas that you probably haven't already thought of! Most of the time I was running around after the older dds while breastfeeding the baby. I was always breastfeeding at the park!

Do you have a garden? If so in this weather let them out and you feed in a comfy garden chair. Supply everyone with drinks/ snacks and shade beforehand
