I didn't know until I read a few things tonight about children regressing when a new sibling is born. I have a 20 month old and am gonna have his little sister in 3 weeks and I was just curious. Does this always happen? Is it common?
my oldest was just shy of his second birthday when his brother was born and he didn't regress. One thing I tried to do was always spend time with the older one and make a point of spending time just the two of us. I never wanted my older on to feel that just because the baby was here that he wasn't important any more. Every night I would just with him and read like we did before the baby was born, even if I had the baby with me I tried to not change to much of his routine.
I have to say that I don't think it always happens and if it starts happening try to nip it in the bud before it gets to far. Good Luck!
