My dd was 4 1/2 when my ds was born. All through the pregnancy, we kept her involved-she pick out his room decorations, clothes, and she went to dr appt. But, as hard as we tried, she is sooooo jealous. He is now 2 1/2. We try to do special things just for her that does not involve him. But, I still have not found the magic solution. I think it really depends on the child. I was not jealous of my little sister. And it seems that everyone I talk to about it, has never had a problem. Some of it we just ignore, too just to not make it worse than it is.
