  • My SO's brother (16) is slightly mentally retarded and he does sometimes get jealous of our baby. When our son was first born, he wanted nothing to do with the baby but as time went on he warmed up to him. I think there will be jealousy no matter what, even if she wasn't disabled so you just need to make sure she knows that a new baby isn't going to replace your relationship with her.

  • It really depends on the age of your baby sister. If she is an infant, she probably will not have any jealousy because she is too young to understand. If she is a toddler, there will probably be some problems. The best thing to do is to show her some special attention. Ask her to help with he baby like holding the diaper or wipes. Talk with her and let her know that she is very important too. Maybe you can take her shopping for a gift that she can give to the new baby.
