with JoMo. If your baby won't latch on, techniques described in this link may help: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/
Jealousy in an older child is very common and very normal. It may help to get your older kid involved in baby care- have him/her select baby's outfits, bring you diapers and wipes, hold baby (very carefully, and with supervision!), sing songs for the baby, show baby his/her favorite toys, etc. If you can get your older kid to start thinking of the baby as a fun new activity, instead of a competitor for mom's attention, he/she may be less jealous. Individual attention is also a really good idea. If you cannot give it, then grandma, daddy, or a babysitter/Mother's helper might be able to step in and make your toddler feel special.
