I didn't worry about loving him the same because I knew I would. I'm the mommy that takes a little bit to know everything about my baby and bond with them through touch, snuggling, and nursing. Of course I loved my children from when they were born but, the bonding just added to all that, kwim?

Anyways, my daughter was 4 when my son was born and she was already really self sufficient. He was so demanding and fussy that it took a lot of time away from her. She has been jealous of him since he was probably a month old. She still shows jealousy streaks.

It all depends on the child and how you include them, the sibling is, etc. You will get a natural rhythm after the baby is here awhile and you'll be able to balance the kids better once that's down.
