BBL 023: Meeting the Needs of Your Toddler and Newborn

Balancing a new baby along with your toddler or preschooler can be a big challenge. With a little planning (and some patience), though, this can become a wonderful time for you and your older child to bond with each other and to form a warm family connection with your new baby!

In this episode I cover:

  • A simple strategy to make life easier with new baby and toddler
  • Easy routines that let Daddy, Grandma or other caregivers keep your toddler secure/happy right after your baby is born
  • Why eliminating decision-making helps you handle life with littles (and how to do that)
  • How to set respectful, yet firm, boundaries to keep everyone safe and sane – and help your little one feel secure
  • Activity boxes – fun for your toddler that gives you a few quiet minutes with your baby
  • How to decide if movies, apps, and other media have a place in your small child's life
  • Saving your sanity with meals and snacks
  • Balancing bathtime, potty visits, and other bathroom needs with small children
  • How to create harmony and relationship between your little ones
  • Encourging your toddler's help (and helping him when he gets grumpy with baby)
