Having a new baby can be life changing not only for parents but for older child in the house .When a new baby joins the family there is often an adjustment period for older child .

Few ways we can try to help make this period of adjustment easier:

🌟Try to maintain old routines as best as you can.

🌟Cuddle your new baby and your older child together.

🌟Work on understanding your older child’s feelings.

🌟Recognize when your child shows patience or empathy and praise them.

🌟 Try to be patient and understanding. understand that regression may occur and is normal.

🌟Provide the child opportunity to be your helper and help you with the baby .

🌟Work on creating time to give your older child undivided attention for atleast few minutes a day .
