Your Firstborn May Need Some Extra Attention
A new baby means big changes for your firstborn. One way to make sure he or she adjusts is by making sure to include them. For example, when you bring your infant home give the older one a small gift. Also, be sure to have plenty of one-on-one time with your firstborn so he or she feels special.
Another tip is to make sure the older child hears you say things such as, “Wait [new baby], I’ll help you in a second. I’m with [first child] now.”
