I need help in general with figuring out how to help siblings interact and not be overly jealous etc. We have an 18month old DD and we are planning on having another one (might be pregnant), and I know with just how she is now that she is going to have jealousy issues among other things with a new baby in the house. She will probably 2 maybe 2 1/2 by the time the next baby comes so I don't know if that will make too much of a difference really. Please any advice, stories, anything would help. Thanks.Answer Question

My kids are 17 months apart. And it worked out fine. Sibling rivalry can exist in any age gap no matter how big or small. It can happen with older kids. Or younger kids. You just have to explain to your kid that you love them all and that babies need different care then toddlers or big kids. Keep explaining to them when they ask why they can't have something the baby has and it will be OK.
