How did your toddler react to the new baby? How did you introduce them? How did you confort your toddler when they reacted badly?
Im curiuse because I have a 30 month old DD and my DH and I have been TTC and I was sitting her thinking we havnt even talked about how DD would deal with it.
Extra question for the ones with school aged kids onto of it. How did you do all of that with them too? I have a 7yo DSD also. She has 2 other siblings so she has been through it with her mom but her daddy is her life and idk how she will handel him having another baby. She took on to my DD pretty easly but she knew that was just daddys step daughter. Didnt actually come from him so to her it was diffrent.

My oldest was just shy of 2 1/2 when his brother was born. I tandem nursed for two years, then finished nursing the baby when he was 3. I never saw signs of jealousy. My 2 year old loved his baby brother and we had a little basket that he carried around with diapers and wipes and diaper bags. We all co slept at nap time, nursed together. I wore the baby, and when i had house work, my oldest was content to play by him self. His brother was 4 months old when I put him in the same room with big brother, and they got along. There were never complaints from my 2 year old when the baby cried. The boys are now 12 and 9 and are best friends. They are kids and sometimes get mad at each other, but always work it out. I have two wonderful kids!!!!
