Ok ladies I am due to have a new addition January 30th and by the time I have my new baby my son will be just turning 2. His birthday is January 18th. As of now he is doing stuff like head butting me in the stomach and climbing all over me. I am worried about how he will act. What should I expect from my 2 year old? What are some ways that he will act not just in general but towards my newborn? PLEASE HELP

Hi Rachel
Honestly when i was pregnant my 2 yr old son drove me insane with it all but when my daughter came along he was a completely different child he decided that it would be better to help me and play with his new sister even though he had an older brother and 2 older sisters already but my 3 yr old daughter decided she would take on his attitude let him come to the appointments ie ultrasound that way he can see he has a new little person that he can help with let him be a big boy he will be more inclined to look after you new baby than hurt either of you also let him know that its ok and the new baby isnt going to replace him it worked with my son now he is almost 5 and she is almost 3 and they are the best of friends wish i could say the same for my older 3
