mrscross1020 :  Your daughter will be OK.  She won’t remember what it was like having the new baby around because she’s so young.  The hardest part will be giving the older one attention when the new baby also needs it.  

My nieces are 17 months apart and my sister was pretty overwhelmed at first but she was able to get into a routine quickly and that helped her a ton.  She also had a lot of help from my family and her ILs.  We would take care of the baby so she could have some one on one time with the oldest.  The oldest did get a bit jealous once her sister started crawling and getting into her things, so even though my sister didn’t buy two of everything, there were certain things (like specific toys and blankets) that were just the oldest’s.

My sister’s youngest in 3 years younger than the middle one and she said it’s almost harder because they are all in different stages.  The oldest two are super close and act like twins.

So even though it’s hard, it’s completely doable.  Congratulations!

My BFF”s kids are 18 months apart. She always says that if she could go back she wouldn’t do anything different. She says the first few years were hard, but after that it was perfect. Her kids (a boy and a girl) are super close. While all her other friends and SIL’s were toting around diaper bags and strollers because their kids were all sevearl years apart – she was able to ditch the diaper bags, strollers, and naps at pretty much the same time.
