Helping Brother and Sister Get to Know Baby

The birth and addition of a new child is an adjustment for our family and fffffor us as a parent. At the same time, we are concerned about our older son's acceptance of a new baby. Sometimes hard to control when he really took a swipe or hurt a baby when he is jealous. Other time he was gentle and give the baby a kiss when he hears her crying or moaning.


To those parents and family who have the same situation like ours, here are suggestions that you may find helpful with their adjustment.
* It can be hard for your other child(ren) to have a new baby in the house.
* Even a child who is excited about a baby may get jealous of the time you need to spend taking care of this new person.
* Try to give atleast 15 minutes every day to your other child, without the baby's interruption to help him feel special too.
* During baby feeding times, keep some small snacks and books nearby so you also have something to share with your other child.
* If you have concerns, talk with your baby's doctor or the hospital for extra ideas.
* Do not leave small children alone with the baby. Even loving play may hurt the baby because your older does not know better.
