Help with jealous sibling issues

I have a 1 month old and a 14 month old daughter, who seems to get very jealous when I am feeding her brother. She comes over to me and bites, cries, scratches, etc. She is not old enough to understand whats happening or to be disciplined..does anyone have any advice of what I can do?

Subbing. No advice at all since I'm expecting #2 in March, but just wanted to say mama. This is my biggest fear with having a second baby. I'm so scared DS isn't going to handle it well

Can there be a special toy she can only play with while you nurse? Or read her a book? My DD1 used to like to sit next to me and hold my hand and watch her sister eat, she was about 21 months when the baby was born.

I have a 3, 2 and 1 year/old. I have a box of favorite toys that only come out during nursing and it really helps! Good luck!!

Re: Help with jealous sibling issues

does she still breastfeed?

how about a baby of her own and special bottle.

what about a small snack or a drink when you feed the baby?

shes young but what about stickers, crayons, playdough that she could sit next to you at a little table and work on?

Z was 4 when N was born, but I would read him a book, or play a short board game with him (like Candy Land) while N nursed and it made a world of difference. I plan on doing the same when this baby comes as N will be just shy of 2.5.
