Hi, I'm bringing home a newborn in three weeks time and am concerned about how to make the adjustment as smooth as possible on my son. They will be only 19 months apart (!!!!). I also have a four year old daughter, but she's okay because she's already been through it and I've been able to prepare her for another brother. She's actually looking forward to it! Any ideas for helping my cot-sleeping, still-teething, limited-vocab son? I've tried to tell him a baby brother is on the way, but I don't know if he understands that the bump of my belly is going to translate into a person. I'm having a C-section to boot, so I wont be able to pick him up as much as he is used to.
