I am 38 weeks right now with my daughter, Madison. We have a 19 month old son named Aedan. I was just wondering how some of your first children reacted to becoming a big brother or sister. We are all very excited, and have been reading books about babies with Aedan and my husband and I have been talking to Aedan about his new baby sister. He seems very interested in all the new baby items we have brought into the house. Also some advice about handling two at a time? Thanks all :))

My first son was 19 mo old when our second son was born!!! He did very well as a big brother. I am not sure he understood all that was happening. Grandma came to help so he got lots of attention. I think that was good since he didn't understand why mommy was gone for a few days. (I had a c-section and was in the hospital longer). Then, I made sure we kept everything as normal for him as possible. I also made sure he had his own "mommy time.". He is still a great big bro to this day! Congrats and good luck!
