Every kid is different.



But my daughter was so excited at 3 1/2 when her baby brother was born and still loves him to pieces a year later. They are little best buds.

My 4 year old became horrible so yep it can happen. She stole him binky, his bottles, started acting out by do things she never did before as in drawing on things and cutting her hair. uggggg I hope it is a phase and I hope it doesn't hit you.

It *could* happen but it sounds more like your friend is jealous or something...

it can happen, but you won't know until LO is out. hopefully she'll be nice and everything with the baby.
my SIL just had a baby last month and her daughter is pretty good with her.
while they were here she pretty much just ignored her baby sister. she's 1 1/2.

Your friend sounds really negative...jus' sayin'...kinda like when people told me I had no idea how horrible it was going to be having 2 (then later on 3) kids so close together.



My oldest is 4, our middle boy is 2 and baby girl is 4 months...my oldest was absolutely thrilled about the fact he was going to become a big brother with both his little bro and then little sis...he is the best big bro I could ask him to be, he helps me so much and deeply loves and cares about them.



All you can do is try to make the transition easier for them, include them in things, talk to them, show them you are thankful for their help.

No, not every kid.

My middle didnt even really pay any attention to her sister when she was born (middle is 4) and once she got about 8 months she became a fantastic sister to her. Now that lo is 11.5 months old I have caught her being mean to her, she will take a toy from her, for the only reason of she wants toplay with it. The other day while lo was in her playpen, and pulling herself up, my middle dd peeled her fingers of the side rail and pushed her back.

First and last time she has done it.

But usually she is really sweet with her, overprotective, she even tells me I put too much food on her tray and she will take some off and say Chloe will choke. When she is upset she would give her a toy or her cup and so on.

Its a matter of if they get jealous or not.

My oldest now 10 was good with her sister till she turned about 2, then went out of her way to hurt her and still does.

Just ignore her. She cannot possibly predict how your child will behave towards her little brother. Those are from her experiences... different family different experiences. Like a friend of mines... her son is really rambunctious and she's always asking how I get my children to behave and I tell her all the time I don't "get" them to behave they just do. Every child is different and there's no predicting the future. Best of luck mama!
P.S. Emma's such a pretty name. That's my SO's mom's name. Cute!

She'll probably be mean at some point. I was extremely mean to my younger brothers. Not physically, but I lied to them and taunted them. :twisted:
