What do I do?

I have a daughter, who will be 4 in May, and a baby due in August. I was at a friend's baby shower and noticed that my daughter didn't like sharing or being around her baby. How can I get my daughter more involved with this pregnancy and get her excited to be a big sister?

My son who is now 5 went to every doctor appointment with us. When we found out what we were having he had a say in her name and he helped pick out her room decor. When his sister arrived he helped pick out her clothes. Congratulations on your soon to be new addition!

Thank you. I really want to take her to the big ultrasound but they only let 1 other person there and no children younger than 8. I'll probably take her to my next appointment. Thank you for the advice. :-)

take her to your appontments so she can hear the heart beat and see the ultra sound pics. keep her involved as much as possible let her pick stuff out for the baby. good luck. my second just turned 1 and my first is almost 4. they dont always get along but that is life
