Hey everyone! I'm new to this but just was wondering some people input on how I'm going to handle a 2 year old and a newborn. I'm trying my best to keep her involved in everything that we are doing with preparations for baby but people keep saying she's gonna be jealous which I am trying to keep from happening.

I agree with Michelle, I have two children a Daughter who is 5 and a son who is 1 and I have to say that my kids are not jealous of each other. You just need to show them that they are loved even when the other needs you. Yes sometimes it's hard but heck if I can do it anyone can.

Thank you. I have been I let her feel the baby if it's kicking And she kisses my belly and rubs it and says that adaleigh and things like that.

I wouldn't listen to those saying she will be jealous of the new baby, she most probably won't be.
I had 2.5 years between my older 2 and my oldest son absolutely loved his little brother. He got a bit upset that they couldn't play together as son as he was born though!
I know a lady that has just had baby #4 and there is 2-3 years between all of hers (yes madness) and none of her older ones have been jealous of the new baby, they have all loved the new babies as they came along.
Keep involving her with the pregnancy and talk to her about how she's going to be a brilliant big sister.
