The only thing better than having a child, is having two, or three, or â€“ well, you get the point. However, your first child wonâ€™t always welcome the newcomer with open arms. So, be sure to help them prepare and be optimistic for their new best friend. Get your child excited about a new baby by including them in the planning. Give them their own â€œbabyâ€ to care for as well. They can feel pride in folding baby clothes or picking out a special toy for their sibling. Talk to your preschooler about the baby, with sentences such as â€œI can't wait till you're a great big brother/sister to the new baby,â€ and discuss what your preschooler might teach the new sibling. Encourage your preschooler to sing or read to the baby, or draw a few pictures for them. Your child will feel less important, so emphasizing their one-of-a-kind â€œroleâ€ as a â€œbig brother/big sisterâ€ is key.
