I had the same issue. My daughter was 3.5 when I had my second and I felt guilty all the time. Finally I told my husband he had to take care of the baby for an hour or two so I could spend time with my older one.

When the baby is sleeping you can spend time with her and you can ALWAYS read to both of them. You can take walks with both of them, join a play group so your 5 year old doesn't feel so left out and maybe go to the library.

There are a ton of things you can do!
