<p>My dd tends to be a bit on the jealous side.  She also weaned 2 weeks ago (no milk).  I plan to tandem, so jealousy shouldn't be a problem there.  She prefers to sleep next to my bed in a playpen, so I don't have to transition her out of my bed.  When dd was born, ds was 6, so we really didn't have any of these issues.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, what issues can I expect?  Any tips?</p>

<p>It can be quite hard for the little one to accept the new baby, but I tried to involve the child loads - I didn't tandem feed and I think that's great you're going to do that!</p>
<p>Perhaps if the 2 year old can ''help'' with bathing, changing etc it may be a little easier?</p>
<p>My now 2 year old was only 18 months when I had TWINS, it was incrediby hard but I got through it, she still gets jealous now and again, and I have issues with being able to disaplin her properly (she's got a heart condition, could be taken from us any day) but apart from that we've done okay - I hope you do to :) xx</p>
