I'd role play with stuffed animals. Some bigger ones, a tiny one, and a mommy. Tell him that the mommy stuffed animal is taking care of the bigger stuffed animals and that pretty soon there will be a brand new baby to take care of. Talk about the kind of care that will be needed, and that the mommy stuffed animal will still care for all the older stuffed animals. This shouldn't be as big a deal as if you were having the new baby. You'll leave the baby behind with the baby's own mother at night, and your little one's life will stay the same at home.
