Our expert says:
Its usually not about jealousy, not consciously, at any rate, but i' well recognized that quite often an child o whatever age, shows age regression ( ie reverting to behaviours typical of a considerably younger age ) when a new baby arrives within the household. Kids sem to vary as to the age at which they are most vilnerable to this. Usually it passes before long. Sometimes it helps to emphasize her helpfulness in caring for / protecting the newcomer, and praise her for being older and more clever. Maybe mentioning how the baby hasn't yet learned how to not wet herself and stay dry, but SHE is usually able to do this, and getting better at it.
