my babies are 15 months apart. My son is 7 weeks old and my daughter is starting to like him now. When we first brought him home she tried stepping on him, but I got her involved in taking care of him. Now she brings me diapers, blankets and pacifiers. If he is fussy, she will rock his car seat or get his swing moving again.
When I was pregnant, I talked to her about the baby. She used to play 'peek-a-boo' with the 'baby', by lifting my shirt up and touching my belly.
I am a stay at home mom so my daughter was with me 24/7 but now she's getting used to having another baby around.
