  • Sometimes you just have to correct behaviors again and again with babies this age. She'll get it eventually if you keep at it, and try to show her ways to be nice. My girls love attention, so if I heap on the praise for being nice, it's like a contest to them. I got pregnant for my littlest girl when her sister was 10 mos., and at the time she was pretty mean to her little cousin. It was really frustrating, but she got over it.

  • Well, when she's mean to another baby, just remove her from the situation and tell her to be nice.

  • She's still pretty young, she probably doesn't understand what's going on! You really can't predict how she'll be with a sibling. Just because she seems to hate other kids right now doesn't mean she'll feel that way about "her" baby.
