I'd love to hear other people's experiences with how big brothers/sisters are adjusting to a new baby! (Please share previous experiences as well!)
My DD just turned four, so she is old enough to have a bit of a grasp of what's going on, and was pretty involved throughout the pregnancy.
She loves to hold baby, give kisses, and marvel at her toes/hair/belly button/etc.
But holy cow. The jealousy. I expected it, but it still breaks my heart. She has always been a momma's girl, and it is hard for her to share me. When I'm nursing baby (all.the.time), she climbs up next to me and snuggles. When I'm carrying baby, she wants to be carried (not.possible). When I suggested we go for a walk after I finished feeding baby, she got whiney and annoyed that baby was "taking so long" (even when it had only been 10 seconds).
I am trying as much as I can to spend one-on-one time with her, hand baby off to DH when I can, and I try not to revolve all our conversations around the baby. Not sure what else I can do!
Tips? Advice? Experiences?
