i have a 2y8m old dd, we are expecting our dd2 at the end of the month. dd was really excited about the baby coming, but is now showing some serious anxiety about it. she is still nursing on demand pretty much, and i haven't had to many problems nursing until lately with all of her new night waking.
anyway, we have a book about homebirths that she loves to read, but aside from that and near constant discussions about the baby and what will happen when the baby gets here, what else could i do to help her get over the anxiety or prepare her for the baby? what have you done that helps?
she likes to play Mommy/Eva where she is the mommy and i am her. we do talk about takign care of the baby then. also she has lots of babies and we "practice" how to take care of the baby and things like that.
any other suggestions to help ease her into this?
