  • Make sure he has one on one time with you and your SO. Make him your big helper for tons of little things and prasie, praise, praise. Some of the best advice I ever got was to make it all about the oldest when bringing home a new baby. Tell him you will go to the playground, out for ice cream, etc because he is a big boy and babies can not do those things. It heped so much when we brought home our second baby. GL and best wishes to all of you!

  • Read him a story while the baby naps. Let him be your "helper". Talk to him while you are feeding the little one. It doesn't have to big things just so long as he doesn't feel like he's being ignored.

  • Let them help change the diaper or throw the diaper away just make them feel included...

  • We go on little outings with each one seperately. Not much...maybe to the park or out for icecream. I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to but I have 3 boys.
