My DS had moments when he was really bratty to his sister  when she first came home we just made sure to  give him one on one time with me(and or DH) and it seemed to help.Even to this day he still has his moments.

My son was 1 when his brother was born took him 3 years to accept the new kid was permanent.

Not really. He was just really curious at first. Now he's happy to have playmates.

My kids are just shy of 2 years and 8 months apart.  My son was fine with her until she got more mobile.  When she was about a year he started biting her and that lasted a while.  They are 5 1/2 and 2 years 8 months now and get along pretty well.

She had her moments in the beginning but for the most part she adjusted pretty well. Now that they are older they fight constantly :( They are 20 months apart

Nope, he acted as though his sister had always been apart of our family :)

He had a few moments at first but was overall pleased with his baby sister until she got more mobile. They're 3 years apart and some days he's pretty mean to her.
