The Baby Blogs. Day 11 – Preparing Your Older Child for Your New Arrival
Posted by: Sue Atkins
Having a new baby is very exciting but your older child may worry about what all the changes may mean to them as for the last year or two they have probably been the centre of your universe so it’s a good idea to prepare them for this exciting new arrival.
Tip 11. Spread the praise. With all the attention heaped on your new baby, your toddler may feel a bit neglected.
So try to extend any compliments to include your other children as well.
So when an admirer says, “What a beautiful baby,” you could add, “Now we have two beautiful children” or “And now she has a beautiful big brother!”
