If you already have a little one, the arrival of a new sibling can be tricky time for them. They may look for extra attention overnight and their sleep and behaviour can suffer. I have popped below a few tips which may help with the transition from only child to elder sibling.
- A good idea is to start getting into slightly new habits a few weeks before your new baby is born. If, for example, you all go swimming on the weekend, mummy might need to sit in the cafe watching everybody swim for a few weeks before the baby is born. This will mean it is not the baby’s fault that mummy can’t come swimming any more, but it is normal for her to go and watch with the baby like she used to.
