being a young mom :)

I would like to tell my story of being a young mom.  When I was 15 I met the man of my dreams.  I got pregnant with my first child only being with this man for 4months and yes we have been together for three years and still together now . I am still in school on my last year of hs. And I am now pregnant with our second baby and I'm so excited because our baby boy is going to be  two in 9 days :) and my son is so excited to be a big brother and every morning he kisses my belly and tells his brother or sister that's in my belly to wake up but I'm just afraid he is gonna hate me when his brother or sister gets here..what could I Do so he don't feel left out or we don't love him because of his sibling being born???

Yeah I was thinking of buying him a gift and giving it to him when he came to meet his brother or sister for the first time or do u think thats a bad idea

Let him help you like pnut0620 said and also play with him while the baby is asleep so he doesn't feel jealous .  Good luck and congrats on your family! (:

I loved when my mom had me sing my little sister to sleep when she was a baby. Try working him into the baby's bedtime routine. My fiance is two years his brother's senior. I'll ask him if there's anything he remembers that his mom did. :)

Your welcome and I would say you should get him a  gift for when his brother or sister comes home I don't think that would be a bad idea .

He said "find ways for them to be together. But don't force him. He will be fascinated with his tiny sibling."

Since my son is the oldest its his job to protect his little sisters like a superhero! I even made him a cape! I think 2 yr olds are more resilient to that kind of stuff than you think ... prepare daddy and let him know that sometimes he may need to step in and help more with big brother so you can take care of baby.
