Hi everyone, I have a baby girl who is 2.6 years old, and I'm expecting my second baby in October. Since my daughter is also small, I don't know how to prepare her for the arrival of her sibling. We have told her, and tried to familiarise her with the idea of another baby in the house, but words and reality will be much different. What can we do to ensure she shares a healthy relationship with her sibling, and be comfortable with the idea of Sharing her parents with someone else? My primary concern is that she should not feel neglected, since after the delivery, most of my time would be spent with my newborn.

Wow many congratulations Akanksha, tagging few moms who have 2 kids , their insight might help you.
