DD1 is 2.5, DD2 is 2 months old. I know it is normal for the older sibling to “regress” and want to be the baby etc when a new baby arrives.
DD1 is doing all of the things I’ve read about. The little bit of potty learning we had managed has gone. She is constantly calling herself a baby. She wants to drink from bottles (DD2 gets breast milk in bottles when I’m at work), and she has appropriated a pacifier. She gets very very upset when she can’t find the pacifier.
So, how long does this “regression” last usually? Any way to get her to drop the pacifier?
