I have a 5 month old boy and a 3 and a half year old girl and my daughter I SUPER jealous of the baby. I have been completely ignoring my crying baby (who only cries when he needs something) to give all my attention all the time to my daughter. She always gets into my lap when I'm about to pick up her brother to see him or to change him or feed him. Those are really the only times I get with him because she is very jealous. She's even told me she does not want her brother anymore to put him back. I don't know what to do anymore besides completely ignoring my baby, and I'm tired of ignoring my baby, he needs attention too. I do have my daughter help me do things for her brother. She helps change diapers and throws them away and she gets me things for him when I ask. She also plays with him. I ask her to play with him all the time, this way she gets attention and he gets attention. but none of it is working too much anymore. Does anyone have anymore ideas????
