He won't even be 2 years yet, so I think it would be different if he was older
Courtney was 23 months when Nola was born. I think at that age it really depends on the kid. Courtney had a full understanding of a baby being in my belly. She'd see pregnancy posters (you know the ones that are a side view of mom's insides with a baby in there) and immediately connect that it was the same as the baby in my belly. So for her, I think she was ready. But a lot of kids that age aren't. Definitely a personal choice!
