  • Praise him when he does something right for the baby, and tell him no gently and lovingly when he does something dangerous. Give him extra attention just for being himself so he can't possibly feel jealous of the baby, in case that has something to do with it.

    Extra attention, and praise for good behavior toward the baby.

  • Get him a baby doll and baby doll swing and a stroller. That way he can take care of his baby just like you take care of the baby. I know some may disagree with getting a boy a doll but it really does work.
    I also agree with Bmat.
