Explain in age-appropriate terms how the baby is growing, and ask him or her to help you set up the baby's nursery. Enroll in a hospital sibling class designed for children and parents to learn together about what it means to become a new sibling.
Explain to your older child that the baby will eat, sleep and cry most of the time. The baby won't be a playmate right away. If your child will need to change rooms or move out of the crib to make space for the new baby, do so before the baby is born. This will give your older child a chance to get used to the new setup before dealing with the baby's arrival.
Try to complete your older child's toilet training before the baby is born or wait until a few months after you bring your baby home to start the process. Arrange for your older child's care during your time in the hospital or birth center, and let your child know that you will go away briefly and return. If possible, arrange a time for your child to visit the hospital or birth center ahead of time to remove some of the mystery. When the new baby arrives, have a family member or friend bring your child to the hospital or birth center for a brief visit.
Allow another loved one to hold the baby for a while so that both parents can give the older child plenty of cuddles.
Consider giving your older child a gift that's from the baby, such as a T-shirt that says big brother or big sister. When you're home, take your older child to a special place — such as a favorite playground — to celebrate the new baby's arrival. Your older child's age and development will affect how he or she reacts to a new sibling. While older children are typically eager to meet a new sibling, younger children might be confused or upset.
Consider the following tips to help your child adjust. Regardless of your older child's age, make sure that he or she gets individual attention when the new baby arrives. If you're taking pictures or videos, include your older child.
Take pictures or videos of him or her alone, too. Consider having a few small gifts on hand to give to your older child in case friends visit with gifts for the new baby. Your older child might try to get attention by breaking rules — even if it means being punished. To stop this behavior, praise your older child when he or she is behaving well. If you suspect your child is behaving badly to get attention, consider ignoring the behavior. This might encourage your child to look for a more positive way to get your attention.
Talk to your older child. Ask him or her how it feels to have a new sibling. Keep in mind that children sometimes regress or act younger than their age after the arrival of a new baby, such as having toilet training accidents or drinking from a bottle. These are normal reactions to the stress of a new sibling that require tolerance rather than punishment. Give your older child love and assurance during regressive episodes.
Sometimes older children — stressed by the changes happening around them — take out their frustration on a new baby. If your older child tries to harm the baby, it's time for a talk about appropriate behavior. Also, give your older child extra attention and include him or her in activities that involve the baby, such as singing, bathing or changing diapers.
Praise your older child when he or she acts lovingly toward the new baby. Even if your children seem to get along, supervision is essential. Don't leave your newborn alone with a sibling or other loved one younger than age If you plan to breast-feed your newborn, you might wonder how your older child will react or how to keep your older child busy while you nurse.
Your older child might hover upon first seeing you breast-feed.
Explain what you're doing and answer any questions your child might have. If you breast-fed your older child, explain that you once did the same thing for him or her.
But hey, time to get excited to become a big sister! Your child will definitely experience some new challenges.
For example, one way to strike fear into the heart of any child is to suggest that her parent may abandon her. Because yes, books about becoming a big sister should touch on the challenging parts of being an older sibling, but they should also point out the fun and heartwarming parts of stepping into the role of big sister.
I bought this book for my 23 month old who is soon to be a big brother. I was having a hard time finding books that catered to his age group and I found this one. My baby brother's first day was so much fun. I went to the hospital to see him and his eyes opened and saw the new world he was in. It was a.
