congratulations!!! I don't think my n son was able to really comprehend what was going on till he B saw the baby. But we just sat him down and told him that he was going to get a little friend to play with soon.

Awww lovely moment...when I was expecting second time my baby was 6 years so it was very easy for her to understand before I discloses she started telling me I know mumma bhai aane wala hai kids are two step ahead for us..lols☺but I did try with my lo last month that he is going to have baby friend by pointing my tummy that it was your home now another baby is there to come with whom you can play  and when he insisted for breastfeeding I used to tell him this is baby's food now you are a big boy you have milk in your pretty cup and you know understood. He told my mom by pointing his tiny finger ye baby hai aur ye baby ka du du hai...hahaha...was little embarrassed but thank God no one was there except my mom lolss. You talk to your kid n keep telling her your baby friend is going to come very soon who will be with you forever and play with you.Let her touch your tummy and feel her it's a good touch for both inside outside babies bonding. All the best☺ thanks asha chaudhry for the tag #tagfwd 😊Ankita Popli how did you tell Arhaan about his little Bro. ?

Congrats! I have 1 but from my experience a big change is best handled by children when they are prepared. Involve your child. Ask your first child to be in charge of younger ones safety. Give your child importancs and assurance that you will love both

my elder one ws less than 3 yrs when i had my second baby. i had a difficult pregnancy so we told her frm the start wht ws happening.we got a couple of books abt the subject too.. ill put up pics if u need. i took her fr my scans and let her feel baby movements n kiss my tummy etc
the difficulty i faced once the baby came is another story!!
