I'm in need of a little extra advice on my 22 month old jealous misbehaving sweet little of his 2 month old baby sister & how & when should I start to discipline him over it.

Yes we always talked & tried explaining about his baby sister. Mostly when he was playing a little rough & somewhat pouncing on my big belly. He has been a helper he has fed her by holding bottle. Even tends to kiss & hug her too. But he just does not like me holding her or giving her my attention at all. I have to hold them both at times, which is very difficult but I seem to manage but don't know for how much longer. Maybe I'm stressing for nothing he may just stop all on his own, bc he is a very sweet & tender hearted little boy.

Did you try to explain that a baby was coming? Do you let him help you in care of the baby such as handing you diapers, wipes box, and such? If you include him in things you might find he loves being the big helper.
