My children are 11 months apart. My son is 19 months old and my daughter is 8 months old. From the time my daughter was born until now, they have best of friends! They loved playing with each other and always being together, the morning she was born he was there and the moment he saw her he smiled! Now all of a sudden, they are so jealous of each other! I've tried potty training my son, but I can't do that while I'm holding my daughter. I can't give one of them attention without the other one getting so jealous and wanting all of my attention! I will make food for my son and feed my daughter but then my son gets jealous and pushes his way between us. He won't let me feed her, he won't let me hold her, he doesn't want me or my husband around her and she is the same way with him! I don't know what to do to show them they are both equally loved. It's hard because my daughter requires more attention because she isn't crawling or sitting up or anything, so I have to carry her everywhere and do things for her, and my son hates it! Please help!
