The aptly named Tiffany Kaplan, 30, director of marketing at jewelry wholesale company B&M Imports, has a sparkling new little gem. “A little pixie!” crowed Ms. Kaplan’s husband of three years, Steven Kaplan, 38, a partner at the corporate law firm Kaplan and Levenson. Little Sloane joins Daisy, 19 months, who lovingly provides the baby with blankets when the latter cries. “With little girls, it’s funny—you already see their maternal instincts at a young age,” said the exhausted mom from the family’s Murray Hill two-bedroom, where the infant is bunking with her parents till she’s big enough to share her sister’s room. “The second Sloane falls asleep, after being awake all night, Daisy’s awake for the day,” Ms. Kaplan lamented. “There’s zero time off.”
