Ok ladies...I have my csection on Friday and am getting nervous about how my son is going to handle everything. He will be 27 months on Sat. and is very attached to me (still nurses) and has been getting very close to Daddy lately....any tips/advice/experiences after baby #2 was born please!!!! I don't want him to feel left out or like I am forgetting about him
My son was 21 months when my daughter was born. He was a super mommy's boy and we were afraid he would be upset.
Things went better than I could have imagined! He loved his "baby shishy" from the start and still thinks the world of her. He is super protective and caring.
I made sure to include him in everything to do with the baby. From bringing me diapers and bottles and toys, to talking to baby when I was busy, to helping pick out outfits.
We also emphasized on thibgs he got to do that sissy didnr. "See, big kids get to watch cartoons or play with blocks etc."
A friend of mine threw a "big brother" party for her son when they got home from the hospital. Everyone had been bringing presents for baby so that was a party where big brother got presents and a cake and special attention. I thought it was great!
