How do I prepare my child for a new baby?
Preparing your child to welcome a new baby isn’t always the easiest thing to do. In no time, your child will no longer be the baby and they’ll need to share that attention.
You can prepare your child for a new baby by:
- Giving them a baby doll and inviting them to help care for the fake baby.
- Spending special time with your child before the baby comes and after the baby comes.
- Talk to your child about having a new baby in the home and what it means.
- Invite your child to help take care of the new baby. They can help give the new baby a bath, read to the new baby, and so much more!
