Having a second baby and worried about how my first will feel

My baby is due in December and I'm so worried about how my oldest (age 2) is going to react to the big change. Will I still get to cuddle my oldest? This has been on my mind alot and I'm so worried about it!!!

My girls are 2 and 5 months, was very hard in the beginning as my oldest was a Covid lockdown baby with her momma! It was a major adjustment for her and I to set new routines and of course adjust my own expectations as to what is going to happen versus what I hoped. The older new new babe gets the easier it gets as now they play more together and sleep routines are setting in and leave more time for me and my oldest. My key advice is when new babe shows up do whatever you can to keep bed and nap time routines just you and them - that truly helped my girl! Msg if you have any follow up

I have a 2 year old son and now a 2 month old son! It’s definitely an adjustment for the whole family but my older son loves his little brother and we still get time to cuddle it is hard but probably harder for you as mama then for your toddler they adapt! Message me if you want to talk more!
