  • Just talk about it- and let him feel the baby move and talk to it and such. My daughter was 2 when I was pregnant and everything was fine for the most part when he was born. She was SO proud to be his big sister

  • So my daughter was 6 months when i got pregnant for the 2nd time. i included her in shopping for brother, and all my dr appts, ultrasounds and such.... bought her a baby doll and kinda had her help me get ready with nursery and such. showed her how to get the baby changed, and dressed and how to put it in baby carrier, and she was potty trained right before brother got home. its hard cuz they do get jealous but it wil be ok
