Cupid’s Advice:

Bringing a baby into your family can be a tough decision, especially when you have older children. Here are some ways to prepare them for the arrival of your new baby:

1. Prepare them: Read your kids children’s books about a new baby coming into the family. Talk to your children about what it means to have another brother or sister. The more open you are with your kids, the better prepared they will be.

2. Practice: If you have older children, have them practice carrying and holding a baby with a doll. Show them how a diaper is changed or how to feed a baby so that they will know what to expect once the baby comes.

3. Get them involved: Get your kids involved — ask them their opinions on different baby names and show them pictures of your sonogram. The more involved they feel, the less threatened they will be by the newest arrival.
