Anyone expecting their second?

I have a three year old son and we are waiting on baby girl to arrive around October 1st. Does anyone have any advice to make the transition easier?

Get all the baby accessories out so he can get familiar with them. Install the car seat early. pick out some kids books about baby's arrival from the library. make him as much as the decision process with wants/needs for the new baby as possible. Congratulations!!

Does he have a baby doll? That way he can feed his baby when you feed your etc...

@Zpatrol - thanks! He seems somewhat excited to be an older brother but I'm worried he will feel like he's being replaced

@cowangel - the baby doll is a great idea! My son is a little aggressive and I was worried about him being a little too rough with a newborn, so that will definitely help!
