Tia Mowry loves both her babies equally- but try telling that to Cree!
Once the Sister, Sister star had her new baby Aden, her eldest
felt like his turf was being invaded! Tia says:
“I remember the first time I held Aden – Cree got jealous! I had never seen him get jealous before, but I guess seeing Momma hold a new baby was not a sight he wanted to see.”
So what is a mom to do when her big little one gets jealous of the little little one? There are a few measures you can employ. She says:
1.) Keep Them Involved –
Before baby is even born, you can start involving your first child in the process. Give him a baby doll to play with and explain how to take care of the “baby”, or if he’s older, ask him for ideas on what to name the baby.
2.) Encourage Interaction –
Find ways that your older child can get involved when you’re taking care of the new baby. Can they hold them? Sing to them?
