He does pretty well unless he's tired or doesn't feel well. Then he gets really frustrated when I'm busy feeding the baby or something and can't cater to him.

Not great, but she had just turned 1 when her little sister was born, so she was too young to understand what was going on and experienced some jealousy and setbacks. DD2 is 3 weeks old now and big sister is getting better with it day by day.

Great! She was a big helper and loves him. She was almost 4 when he was born

I have 7 other children besides Logan, the baby(he will be 7 months on Monday) 6 of them loved him and wanted to hold him and fought over who was gonna feed him..not Hunter, my 6 yr old, 5at the time, he wanted nothing to do with him..when you asked him does he like Logan he said no..if you asked him if he loved Logan he would say i don't know.. Well, when Logan was around 4 months old or so, I would catch Hunter kissing him at times..or playing with him when I was out of he room..then I asked him, do you like Logan now?? He said yes..I asked why he didn't like him before, he said it was cause he was boring and just layed there and now he smiles and laughs and does stuff..lol..now he plays With him all the time and Logan really loves him..he gets excited when Hunter comes in the room....hopefully Hunter won't be that same way when this new baby is born..we will see!!

not very well. dd is 10 weeks old and her brother is 2.5 years old. the first week or two he was fine, but then he realized she was staying and now he's extremely jealous, screams when she cries BUT he does love her. that's his little sister lol.
