My friends who just had babies are having the same issues with their firstborn, DHessRN. I think the key is just to keep gently reminding your little guy that he needs to be gentle with his new sister and demonstrate all the ways he can help out and play with her.

Hey I'm Leslie. I have a little boy who is one and a half and a newborn little lady. My oldest absolutely adores his little sister. But that means its hard to get him to leave her alone to sleep. DX

i have an 18 month old daughter, who is struggling with jealousy issuses with her new baby brother. although, she is great with him loves to help me with diapers, binkis and gives him plenty of kisses and hugs.  its only bad when im feeding him and its a struggle for me to try to pay attention to her while he is latched. IM BEGGING for advice on how i can let her now i still love her  but feeding time is brothers time with mommy..... i dont want her to think i  love her brother more then her. any suggestions?!?!? would be GREATLY appreciated!

My daughter is getting a baby brother soon and i honestly dont know how to do it. she was so spoiled because her brother was FAR FROM PLANNED but he's still a miracle to me. I'm just afraid of having 2 kids fight for my affection and at this point I'm terrified to know how to take care of a 1 year old and a new born on my own at the same time. theres nothing to prepare you well enough for one baby little own 2! I dressed a baby doll up in a premie boy outfit and she holds it and i tell her she's going to have a baby brother soon that will be a little bigger than the baby doll and will eventually play with her and talk to her. she looks at me like im stupid of coarse but how do you prepare a 1 year old for a sibling?
