Get practical
If your baby is expected at a time the older child may have a major transition, such as toilet training or moving from crib to bed, decide either to go for it before the baby arrives, or wait until after the birth. It's quite common for some kids to regress when their baby sibling arrives, but it'll sort itself out pretty quickly once the older child feels reassured.
