My sister-in-law is almost 10 years older than me, but I got pregnant immediately after she had her first baby, so we have grown fairly close. I could ask for her opinions about my baby issues, and I could offer her support as a nursing mom (she exclusively pumps). Well, she got pregnant with her second immediately after Fletcher was born, so our boys are all nine months apart. I'm happy-go-lucky with my little guy, and she is really struggling with her 21 month old and her 3 month old. Her hubby, my husband's brother, works a lot of hours, seven days a week, so she is home alone with the boys all the time. The whole family lives 2-3 hours away. What can I do to help her? She seems so stressed and frustrated. I'm afraid that she can't enjoy her kids at all. Do you have any ideas of how I can make this time a little easier for her?
