With a relatively new baby we are currently dealing with the sibling jealousy problem. Can’t say we are totally sorted at present but I did find a good book yesterday called Sophie & The New Baby by Laurence and Catherine Anholt that on first impressions looks quite useful.


Alot of books about new babies tend to be ones that help kids understand what is in mummy’s tummy and don’t really cover how it will affect the older child other than the nice bits like they can help mummy and daddy and give the baby cuddles. Sophie & The New Baby actually covers the bit about the older child showing jealousy and the baby not being everything they hoped for initially as babies are rather demanding and can’t do all the playing that the older child might like them to. This is a good example of a book you can share with a child to help them understand an “issue”. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080757550X, Hardcover)

Sophie likes to play with her rag doll, but then her mother tells her the big, important secret. "Soon you'll have a real live person to play with. We're going to have a new baby." Sophie likes this idea, but the baby takes so long to arrive that she sometimes forgets all about it. When her new brother is finally born, he's quite a disappointment. He can't play with Sophie, and he needs Sophie's mom and dad all the time. Worst of all, Mom and Dad seem to like him a lot. One day, Sophie shouts at the sky, "I don't want that baby anymore!"
