For Moms whose babies are close, how did you help your first child accept the new baby? All the info I can find is on older children. My son will be around 16 months when our new baby arrives and I need to be sure I'm doing all I can to prepare him for the change.
Please no negative comments. If you have only negative things to say, look elsewhere. This is hard enough without you adding your acid-coated 2 cents.
Thanks ladies, I really appreciate it!

My youngest two are 11 months apart and at first my son wouldnt come near me or the baby, that lasted about a week. After that I just made sure that I still devoted a good amount of time to doing the things we always together. I have four children so my husband and I make sure that we get a lot of family time in, but also spend time each week with each child independently. You will find that everything just falls into place. Your worries as a mom are very common and I am sure everything will be perfect, good luck!
