Once you’ve broken the big news, you’ll most likely have several months to prepare your child for a brother or sister. How best to do this will depend on your firstborn’s age and interest level. We’ll help you figure out how to talk to your child about the baby, involve him in the preparations, and get him ready for the momentous change that’s coming. Depending on their age, a big brother or sister may want to entertain the baby during a diaper change, help push the carriage, talk to the baby, or help dress, bathe, or burp the baby. If your child expresses no interest in the baby, don’t be alarmed and don’t force it.
It can take time. Getting your older children involved in the preparations for the new baby will help them to feel more a part of the change and growth in the family. Some families involve older children in decorating the new baby’s nursery or choosing toys for their new sibling. Having enough time to deal both with the new baby and your older child is very important, as there are many things that you can do when it comes to preparing your child for a new sibling.
Firstly, make sure that your older child hears from you about the arrival of the new baby. Pediatrician Dr. Alan Greene, author of Feeding Baby Green: The Earth Friendly Program for Healthy, Safe Nutrition During Pregnancy, Childhood, and Beyond adds that, “the best preparation is to re-enforce your child’s role in the family — especially the new role as older sibling. Talk to your child about the new baby by calling him ‘your little brother’ instead of ‘Mommy’s new baby’ or even ‘the new baby.’.
Prepare your child for a new sibling: Buy a baby doll! We now have a few baby doll s in the house, and they are some of the most coveted toys. Yes, even in a house with only boys!The best thing is for mom and dad to make special one-on-one time everyday, maybe even twice a day, for the oldest child that is sacrosanct, especially if that child is exhibiting insecurity early on. They need to ensure that those special times continue after the new baby arrives.
Prepare your child for when you are in the hospital. He may be confused when you leave for the hospital. Explain that you will be back with the new baby in a few days. Set aside special time for your older child. Read, play games, listen to music, or simply talk together.
Show him that you love him and want to do things with him. Preparing your other children for the new baby: tips Before your new baby is born, you can help your other children feel positive about the new member of the family. They need preparation, communication and lots of understanding. Schiller says you should talk to your child about becoming a sibling in an “age-appropriate way” and be honest about the difficult aspects of their new role.
