I am not currently pregnant but would like to be. One of my major concerns is how to prepare my DS for potential siblings. Currently he is mine and my DH's whole world. How do I ensure he doesn't feel replaced or pushed aside?

My 1st was only a baby when I was pregnant with my 2nd so it wasn't a big deal. She didn't know any different but from the time I found out I was pregnant I talked to her about her new baby brother/sister. By the time the baby was due and she was 15 months she would point to my tummy and say, "baby". She wasn't even fazed when we brought her new brother home. She just accepted that he was there. Same thing with our 3rd (she was only 28 months and my son was 13 months then). We were always asking them what they thought the baby would think of whatever we were doing or talked about what things would be like next time we did something when the baby was with us. They also helped out with the baby (getting diapers, clothes, throwing things away for me, helping hold bottles, etc).
I never had jealousy issues until my kids got much older (like now at 4, 7, 8 and 10).
