My son will be 3 in November and my daughter is 3 months what should I do to spend more time with my son because he needs to know that I am here for him to and not just his sister

My oldest daughter was 2 when i had her sister...well at first she was not,but as time came and her sister became moveable she did...this might sound mean or whatever... what i always did was and is.... spend a little more time with him and just tell him over and over how much you love him...and if you have there daddy around get him to watch the baby while you and your son go to the park or whereva...and when its nap time take him outside or play in his room with him instead of cleaning... i always save the cleaning for when my kids go to bed.... i hope you liked my advice....

My two sons are 22 months apart. When my youngest, Caleb, came around Grant was a big helper. I guess try to make the simple things you do with your daughter fun so your oldest wants to help. Make up a song about changing diapers, so he wants to be there with you having fun. Try to get him to play with her to see that you can share your time with both with out him having to compete for her attention. Then try to set aside some time each day (it could be just 15 minutes) doing what he loves doing.....Good luck. It does take a while to get used to two kids...
