Survival Tip of the Week: Preparing Your First Child for a New Baby

February 3, 2020

If you are at the point in your life where you are pregnant with your second child, then this tip is for you. When it comes to preparing your first born to become a big sister or brother, try to make big transitions several months before the new baby’s arrival. Depending on the age of your child, this could mean potty training, switching them from a crib to a toddler bed or even just adjusting their daily routine. It’s better to start these transitions early to prevent your child from resenting the new baby. Becoming a big brother or sister and having to share mom and dad with a new little one is already tough enough!
