Hi. Although there may be an adjustment period when a new baby arrives I would not worry about your son being or feeling left out. If you dote on him too much you might have a maladjusted only child. Share your love and If you want a second child, have one. Children adapt and it would be good for him to have a sibling to grow up with.
