I feel bad for her.

My 12m old daughter is very upset about her new baby sister. And I dont blame her but it seems like every time she wants to ply I have to feed the baby. I try to play with her other times and read her stories and things but she doesnt want anything to do with me then. She will come when I have the baby and get mad and try to push her out of my lap. What do I do?

  • You really really need to set aside specific time for you. And you need to let her see that sometimes, you put her needs before baby's needs. She may be the oldest but she's still a little baby herself.

  • Set a mommy date up where you take her out, just the two of you.
