My 21 month DD will be a big sister in November- she will be just 2yrs. I'm worried she will find the transition really really hard. I have done all the things i should like talking to her about mummy's tummy, the new baby brother, books, and involving her as much as possible. She has baby dolls which she loves and is very gentle and caring toward so im sure she will be fine eventually.
But the problem is if I hold a friends baby she freaks out and cries inconsolably - in reality I think she is going to be extremely jealous. Even if the cat sits on my knee in the evening she starts crying and pushing the cat off.
Does anyone have any tips or ideas of more i can do? Or is it just a matter of waiting to see what she is like?
I really want to her enjoy her new brother!
