Let them know that they can bring the newborn and if they still decline due to the toddler then that is their choice. You can;t really not let them bring their newborn if you are letting someone else!

@j_jaye:  I agree.

Tell them they can bring Leah since she’s still breast feeding but “little Tommy” (or whatever the toddler’s name is) will have to stay at home. 

If other people coming from the same area have arranged sitters, maybe suggest they share a sitter for their toddler.

Just stand firm. Let them know you understand the breast feeding issue so the newborn can come, but that is the ONLY exception you are making.

Buy her a breast pump? just kiding. lol.

Do you know anyone where your wedding is taking place that wouldn’t mind watching thier children. I nanny for a family with three children and if they have a baby-free wedding I often tag along and watch their children. Is it possible for you to hire someone? It would just cost the minimum wage-ish in your area. 

If other people have a sitter ask if they mind sharing? It would cut their cost in half for a sitter. Overall it would save you the stress and the families the financial cost!
