I'm due in 4 weeks and this will be baby number 2. My 4 1/2 year old son has been so excited about becoming a big brother to his little sister on the way and he knows it's getting close. He is constantly talking/ singing and kissing my belly. He's even given up old stuff toys for her.

He's been toilet trained for over a year and has just started having alot of accidents, both wee and poo, everyday. He just sits there or stands there. I thought maybe he was just too busy playing, or being lazy, but was wondering if it could be the new addition coming.

Is it possible? Even though he's so excited? What should i do?

It's totally normal. I'm sure for you, you are thrilled about this baby and excited, but nervous too! There is a big change going on in your family and it is super common for children to regress a little. Just keep encouraging him and being consistent, talking about things normally and excitedly. :D Congrats to the big brother to be!
