i have two little boys, my oldest is 3 and my little one is 1 1/2, and my older son is very good to his little brother, but the little one is jealous of his older brother and every other child that comes near me or his dad. And im expecting a baby feb 13th and im worried about how my son will cope. does anyone have any advice?

My older boys (ages 4 & 2 1/2) both seemed to switch focus from Mom to Dad. It helped that my husband understood this and made special time with them at the park and out for lunch on a regular basis. When I nursed, the boys would bring a book for me to read or a stuffed animal that they would nurse. Kids seem to find a way to adjust if you give them the chance. Remember to stay calm and not get caught up in the moment. The first few days after the grandparents had gone home, we did have head banging on the floor at each nursing.
