My wife is now pregnant with a second baby, this I think makes my first baby (20 months old) very jealous. As a result the first baby would want her mom to hold her all the time. If her mom refuses, she will just cry very, very loud.
How to stop the baby from behaving like this? We are very tired as a result of this.
What we have tried:
- Tell her nicely, repeatedly, that this is not acceptable
- Asking her daycare teachers opinion. But they don't have this problem with our baby because she is very well-behaved in daycare.
- Asking our parents how to solve this problem. The answer: Just give in to her ( we are not prepared to accept this!)
We are really at the end of our wits. That's why we are asking for help here.
