Help! I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 2 month old. The 2 year old is acting out because he's jealous of the new baby, and I don't know how to fix it. When I sit down to breastfeed he seems to go a little crazy, and I can't seem to keep him happy! A little one requires so much attention, and while I try to give him one on one time every day it isn't enough. I hope that this phase will pass as my daughter gets older and needs less attention, but I just don't want my son to resent his sister. Is there something that I can do to lessen the blow when I have to spend time with my daughter, or this this just the norm?
