Trying to get him toilet trained and in a bed before the new baby arrives

Hi Alex,
Im having another baby, due 20th of July and my little boy will turn 2 on August 9th. He still is having a bottle and sleeping in a crib and hasn`t been toliet trained. We have gotten him a toddle bed, but he is just so busy he wont fall asleep in it like his dose in his crib, I was thinking about starting toliet trainig as he is showing signs of be ready to start and we really need to get him of the bottle. Some people have been telling me that i shouldn`t start yet as when the baby comes, he will just go back to being a baby and others have said to get it all done before the baby comes. I really don`t know what i should start doing if anything, please help, Megan

Answer: Hi Megan, I`m a midwife dealing with pregnancy, childbirth and newborns. It`s best to direct your sleep related questions to Maree, or see your Early Childhood Health Centre. Best wishes, Alex
