Preparing For Baby Number Two
HOW DO I PREPARE MY CHILD FOR THE ARRIVAL OF OUR SECOND BABY?
Do what feels right for you, you know your child the best, listen to those instincts.
Talk about the baby, point out other babies when you are out and about.
Some children respond really well to having a doll and then when the baby comes they can copy you and role play with the doll.
Some children get very upset when they hear a baby cry. Showing them a video of a baby crying and explaining why the baby cries and that it is because the baby can’t talk like they can. The benefit of using a video is you can control the volume and also pause as you are explaining.
