I urgently need advice (and my heart just gets sad everytime I think about this). I have a 3-year old daughter, whose personality and attitude completely changed when her sister arrived. Baby is now 6 months old. My 1st lady throws tantrums, cries for every little thing and is just plain naughty most of the time. I can't even go shower without her crying after me. I can't remember the last time she slept through the night and still comes to our room. The only time she sleeps is when she actually feels someone besides her.
I'm at wits end as I am really really exhausted getting up twice at night (once for baby's feeding and other time for her). I get so frustrated with her and feel like such a bad mom. Please help! I don't know what to do, how to make her understand that she's just as important as her little sister. We thought we prepared her so nicely for baby's arrival, but clearly not.
