Sibling Rivalry

Mummy never blog about En En reaction when she first met with her didi, baby Zheng due to breastfeeding issues. Sadly, En En doesn't like her Di Di as we can sense the jealousy from her. En En still refers herself as "Baby" and baby Zheng as "Baby Di Di".

Mummy still remember the first day En En visited mummy in hospital... there's no smile on her face. She looks weird as mummy was carrying and cuddling another small "creature". This was the first time En En saw a tiny baby and she even cried when she heard baby's crying. Next we asked her like baby Di Di or not, she said scared! The second day in hospital En En asked mummy to go home with her and baby Di Di stay in hospital. *pengsan*

En En reluctant to enter mummy's room whenever baby Di Di is and she will tells you baby Di Di is very noisy, always cry. All of us try our best to include En En with baby Zheng but she always turn and run away! Oh Gosh... maybe she's been used to be the princess of the family as she really needs time to adapt to her new role as a Jie Jie.

En En, no matter it's you or baby Di Di, mummy and daddy will give equal love to both of you. Hope that one day you will understand.

Poor En En, hope she gets used to didi soon.

Abi was quite happy to see her mei-mei, even asking us all the time before Bri was born about 'baby'.
We prepared her by reading books that had a toddler and baby, with mumm y and daddy in it.
It prepared her for crying, for mummy bf-ing the new baby, and also for helping out.

One book is called 'There's a house inside my mummy'
The other books is called 'My new Baby'

Maybe they will help her understand? (especially 'My new baby')

My friend said when the elder saw the bb first time, give him or her a present and said that the present is given by the bb. Then the elder one will sayang the bb....
She said it's work for his son also, her cousin also do like that.

did u get her a gift?? Go try it, it works perfectly for mine ;). I'm sure she'll take a while to accept didi, no worries, just a phase

... that probably concludes why my LO prefers to have a 'goh goh' when I asked him... well, when Di Di can start playing with En En, maybe she'll enjoy it more. She prob don't know why everyone is trying to 'please' Di Di at the moment ;)

Give her more time. When she finds that didi is actually 'fun' to play with, she'll love him to bits.

Oh don't worry, En En will eventually accept her didi. BRyan still cries for our attention whenever we talk and play with Brandon. It's only normal. Just be patient - that's what I tell myself all the time!
