Hello, just returned home with newborn DD from hospital. DS is 15 months and generally good natured and sweet but I'm dreading the transition from the 3 of us to 4, especially whilst I recover from csection.

So far he's 'anointed' her with a pat on the head and tried to call her on his toy phone. Otherwise ignored her! We've given him a couple of little things from her as shameless bribing but he's a bit too young for obvious displays of jealousy etc.

Any thoughts on encouraging future harmony appreciated!

I have a 16 month gap. I don't think there was any jealousy as such, I think ds1 was too young to be jealous

I think ignoring sounds good at that age: far safer than being over-excited and plenty of time for a relationship to grow.
