I just had a baby a wk and half ago and i have a 4 yr old boy who was extremley excited about the new baby until she arrived, now he is giving everyone the cold shoulder. He isn"t acting out or being mean to his new sister just not paying any attention to her and pretty much ignoring everyone else. Not quite sure how to handle this situation, i have read about the jealousy but it didnt say anything like this could happen. I have tried to involve him in being a part of feeding her and changing her etc. but he just doesn't want anything to do with it. please help!!

I would just let him adjust in his own way. This is how he is dealing with it. Maybe later on he will be more interested.
