Very normal. Make sure you set aside time for him/her. Alone time. I used to read a lot of books to both of my daughters.



I would also play with my oldest instead of house cleaning while the baby napped. It's tough because now you have two very needy kids. You have to spend as much time as you can with your older one.



Maybe your husband can watch the baby while you spend an hour a day with your 2 year old?
