Definitely depends on how old the toddler is ....if It is beyond the age of 6 , you should be able to explain things ....if this toddler is between 4 and 5 years old , maybe it will grow out of that ...(hopefully )

You teach empathy and fairness.
So if your toddler is jealous because Mommy is holding the baby, you explain how Mommy held you just that way, because she loved you so much, and that never stopped even though she has a new baby. And that when the baby sleeps, you and Mommy can have some special time if and only if you let Mommy and the baby have their special time.
Or if your toddler wants all the toys when it's someone else's birthday, you explain how birthdays are special days when just the birthday person gets the toys, and her birthday is in June, not too far away, and won't it be wonderful, getting new toys, just like today is wonderful for the birthday girl?
Two year olds are headstrong and selfish, but already they are capable of reason.
