How do you prepare your relationship for welcoming a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Welcoming a child is an exciting experience for any couple. But like every change in a relationship, it takes adjustments. Here are some ways to maintain a successful relationship with a new child in your world:

1. Recognize priorities: Priorities change for any person who becomes a parent. Accept the fact that you must now share your sweetie with someone else: your baby.

2. Family time: Continue to do things together, even if it’s simply giving the baby a bath. You can bond with your baby and your love at the same time.

3. Baby duty: Split your baby duties equally. Work out who will be taking care of the baby at what times, including the middle of the night.
