My today’s post revolves around new sibling. Every family gets excited when they hear the news of their new addition. Bringing home a newborn is a little different the second time around. They start to think of all those things that need to be taken care of before the baby arrives. One of them is preparing your first child for a new sibling. With the second baby, you’re likely to wonder how your older child will react to having a new sibling. Every child feels their sole right on their mommy. Accepting the fact that soon my mommy is going to be shared by someone else other than me is quite hard. That doesn’t mean they are not happy. But their little brains are not able to process this new information very easily. We have to help them to do that. So, what can we do? That’s today’s topic is – Have you prepared your first child for a new sibling?
Also, their friend circle or what they get to hear outside the house plays a very important role in building their thinking. With all of the changes that a new baby can bring, some older kids might struggle as they try to adjust. So, try not to let them anticipate the future.
Last but not the least,
These were my experience on how to prepare your first child for a new sibling. I followed almost all these point with my daughter to prepare her for her baby brother. And it worked very well.
