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 10. You can also let your older child be the one to unwrap the baby gifts before they “give” the toy to their baby brother or sister.
