My DD is due in Nov, and has a 2 1/2 yr old. How can she tell her to be careful when she is playing or jumping up for hugs and lap time without her feeling jealous of her baby sister in mommy's belly.
when I was expecting #2 and son #1 wanted to play rough or jump I just reminded him he couldn't be rough with mama he had to be gentle to mama's belly. We would practice gentle touches (ie light touches on the arm or soft pats on the tummy or back) so he would know to be gentle but would also be getting good 1 on 1 time. Also, I used my cell phone to record the heartbeat at one of my doctor appointments and let my son listen to it telling him it was the baby. He would ask to hear it over and over again (still does).
