My daughter and son are 14 months apart too, I found that while feed my son his sister gets jealous, usually in the morning. what I found helps is if I ask her if she wants to help mommy feed her brother. Madie has finally started learning to use her word and Chase is now 7 months old and it is does get easier. Madie still likes to help but with my assistance and if she doesn't want to help she has to get down and no longer help, she normally calms down then just sits beside me

you will have your hands full. Mine are 19 mths apart. The best thing I can suggest is check your local or nearby hospitals. They usually provide sibbling and/or toddler bringing home baby classes. Keep in mind he has still a baby and it will be a transition for all of you. Also some communities offer toddler classes that could help prepare him. Keep telling him he'll always be your baby. It's a handful but wonderful :)
