Cupid’s Advice:

Bringing home a new baby is both exciting and nerve-racking, especially if there is another child in the mix. It’s a delicate situation to introduce a new addition to an already-established family dynamic. Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Explain what’s happening: For younger children, a new baby can be hard to understand. Before the baby arrives, sit your children down and have a talk with them. Tell them what’s going to happen and ask if they have any questions. Knowing what to expect will take the edge off of their initial meeting.

2. Affirm your love: Jealousy happens. As a parent, you must be sure your child knows that they are loved. You can explain the concept of infinite love. Even with this new bundle arriving, you won’t love your older children any less than you did the moment they were born.

3: Make it fun: Your children are going to become big brothers or sisters! That comes with some responsibility and a ton of fun. Knowing that they, too, have a role in this new baby’s life will make your children feel important and get them excited.
