    Sounds completely normal!

    One thing I found that helped is spending one on one time with the older one. When DH comes home, he gets the baby and i do craft or drawing with my older child. My babies always spend a lot of time in the ergo while I do things with the older child. When bub is sleeping, I also do something with older child first before I do any housework or go on the computer! This seems to have a good effect.

    It is a phase and she will grow out of it - I repeat this to myself quite often! Seems to help me keep perspective!

    While this can be normal jealous behaviour and making sure you are giving her attention for her good behaviour the bad behaviour should not be ignored. She needs to learn its not ok to hit/bite etc in any circumstance. I would be quick to discipline her with tone of voice and a warning once, if she continues and everytime after then go straight to her remove her and put her in time out or similar for 2 minutes, no more warnings. She needs to learn the behaviour is not tolerated at all. It may be a challenge at first but it will be worth it. Combine this with good attention and she should learn violence/lashing out at others is not the way to get what you want.

    can she climb? if not i would pjt her into a play pen or portacot every single time, just say that was mean, we dont do x (hit, bite etc) you hurt him and remove her then give all your attention to your son and calm and settled, once he is happy again then let her out, remove anything that posses a danger to your baby from your daughters reach and lots of supervision, if she goes to hurt bub remove her before she does and tell her no its not okay for you to try and hurt your brother.

    good luck hun
