My son was 9 when we got pregnant again. We were really
lucky in the way that he wanted a baby too, so he was beyond thrilled about it.
I think girls tend to be more emotional and have more drama. I would try to let
it go for a while, and then as you get further try to involve her as much as
you can. Get baby thinks of “ I love my big sister”. Let her pick some stuff
out. One important thing is to not let her feel replaced. I started a weekly “date”
with my son when I was pregnant, and we continue it now so he didn’t feel
Also, i will tell you its like having 2 only children. While my son loves his brother, its not like hes super fun or anything at a year old. and since they are in two totaly different stages of life, it cna be relaly hard to balance.
