Health Tip: Preparing Your Baby for a Sibling

What you can do

(HealthDay News) -- Bringing a baby into the family is a big adjustment, especially for the youngest of the family who must adjust to the role of older sibling.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Talking about the new baby. Even if your youngest can't understand what it really means, it's good to talk about it.
  • Sharing your excitement. Your child will start to feel excited too, simply because you are.
  • Reading books together about getting a new sibling.
  • Planning a special activity, gift or event to celebrate your oldest child once the new baby arrives.
