Ditto! But I started watching 2 kids when my oldest was just 2 months old, so he was used to having other kids around/sharing me.
Prior to #2's arrival, we made sure daddy got more involved with bathtime/bedtime since we knew he'd probably have to handle it sometimes if baby was nursing. We made sure to do things with him so he didn't feel left out and I asked him to be my helper with certain things (get diapers, etc)
My kids have always adjusted well and have never had jealousy of the baby.
As far as noise, I don't make them be overly quiet....I figure baby needs to learn to be able to sleep in a little commotion, otherwise they'd never sleep if we were out and about. They've all done fine.
Honestly, I think in most cases, we worry more than we need to.
