I'm a first-time mum - my baby is currently 8 weeks old. My husband also has an autistic son, who is nearly seven.
We had our concerns about how his son would react to the new baby - and luckily he does love her and wants to be with her all the time. Unfortunately her presence really stimulates him, which makes home life very difficult - for example, he is constantly asking where she is, unable to leave the baby monitor alone, and cannot control himself from being very loud and 'in her face'. He can also get very overexcited and difficult to control, especially if she is crying, and he is much more needy and demanding, especially of my husband.
I was wondering if anyone else had similar experiences or any advice?
Thanks so much!
