WE ASKED YOU:
How did you prepare your toddler for a sibling? Do you have any tips for other mums about to have a second child?
Buy a gift for the older sibling (or both of them) and do an exchange when the older child meets the new baby, and tell the older child that the baby got them a gift. Worked a treat with my first born when we welcomed a second child recently! Also, there are books out there to prepare them on the arrival of a new baby. Good luck!
If your toddler is in care, keep them in! It gives everyone a break; toddler from being bored stuck at home and for mum and bub a time to potentially nap and also to bond one on one.
I got my daughter a kids’ book saying a new baby is coming in the house and how she can help look after the baby too. She really liked reading it.
