I think it may be something to do with the age, I have a mindee 16 months and he is the same but his obsession is with bottles of milk, he can't stand to see me feed the 8 month old his bottle and screams constantly until I have finished. I try to ease the situation and I find he is better when not fastened somewhere like a highchair etc as he is free to play etc and entertain himself, how about going to groups? This way he would have lots of stimulus and might not notice it as much.

Hope things work out and he settles down for you

That's why God gave us 2 knees! Sorry I didn't mean to sound unsympathetic. It's hard when it's your own little 1 who has to share your affections but it will get easier.
Remember your mindee will be missing his mum and is not as lucky as your l.o. so he will need cuddles too. Stick with it and use distraction, singing etc.
