I have the same problem. My son just turned 2 months old today and have a 3 year old daughter. The only thing I've really been able to accomplish is having my daughter help out with the baby when he's awake (making him smile and laugh, talking to him, helping grab things like his binkie and diapers and wipes), and then once he's asleep, focusing on her alone. That way she feels like she is entirely part of the family.

I did the same, I always had them help me out with things and they liked helping. My kids are now 7, 7, 4 and 1. :)

Your infant should still be sleeping the majority of the time. When they are asleep play With the older child. Never has this problem and we've had one every 4 years for 26 years.
