How to Prepare Your Child for a New Sibling

How do you prepare your older child or children for life with a new baby? After welcoming 7 new siblings in our family, I've discovered a few tips and ideas that will help you get big brothers and sisters off to a great start with a new sibling!

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • Major changes you should consider before the new baby comes
  • The exact timing of big changes to help your older child adjust (and keep your sanity)
  • Why routines are your best friend when it comes to toddlers and new babies
  • How to help your child prepare for the sights and sounds of babies
  • What to do if your child has sensory issues
  • Special activities that keep your older child feeling loved when the new baby arrives
  • How your child can help with baby (in a way that works for both of you)
  • Why calling in reinforcements can help your older child adjust
  • How to think in “mother mode” now so you have the energy for your new babe – and your todder later
