A new baby

You are expecting another baby. Congratulations! This may be very happy news for you and your partner, but you toddler might not feel the same way. Start preparing them for the change early.

• Read books about babies and siblings.
• Show your toddler pictures and talk about when they were a baby.
• Give your toddler a doll or stuffed animal to care for.
• Make big changes well before the baby comes. For example, moving from a crib to a bed, changing rooms, or toilet training.
