think my son is getting a bit jellous of his new baby sister, hes not eating his meal at dinner time, and is constantly cryin to get our attention, but i dont know where we are going wrong!! We always include him in helping with the new baby, and when shes sleeping we play games or sit and watch tv . Does anyone have any ideas i could try???? xx

I will be in the same boat in 3 weeks or so, so if you get any good ideas I'd like to know too!! Sounds like you are doing what you can, it's probably just a transition thing he's going thru, may take some time for him to get used to the fact that there is another little one getting attention apart from him. Maybe if dad took him out for a special daddy and son afternoon? Keeping to his normal routine as much as possible? Other than that sounds like you are doing great.

I also will be going through the same thing in June. My son will be 2 and i'll have a new baby girl. I'll be a single parent so it'll be a little bit harder for me to do things with both of them. If u do find out anything let me know too. ty

try getting him to "help" you. Kids that age love that. Also let him tickle her feet or use other ways of him to feel like he can bond with the baby. make it about their relationship and not mommy and son v. mommy and baby

A yr ago I was dealing with with Joslyn jealous of Alexis, especially because I breastfed. Joslyn would act out and try to get attention. I realized that and I started spending a couple hours per day when the baby was asleep with her. She would sit beside me and we would watch t.v. or play.

fortunately my son is an awesome big brother. He was 14 months when she was born. now he is 19 months and my daughter is 5 months. He has been slowly changing a little bit in the last month. He is still great with her but im thinking the terrible twos might change it a lil. so maybe its just him being a 2 year old? maybe.....GOOD LUCK =]]

i spoke to my health visitor about this, she says he will come around in his own time, and at dinner time just to leave his meals if he doesnt want to eat them, not to make a fuss about it, he will eat when hes hungry in his own time. she also mentioned a playgroup, so im going to get him into that, get him used to playing and sharing with other kids his age (2) thats a good idea about a special day with daddy, going to try that out soon, maybe a day to the park.
