The arrival of a new brother or sister can be unsettling for a toddler who is used to having your undivided attention. You may find that your toddler isn't as happy and excited about your new baby as you are. Some find it difficult to adjust. These tips may make introducing your toddler to their new brother or sister a little easier:
Be prepared to cope with extra demands. Your toddler may need more attention. Friends or relatives may be able to help out, but your child will still need one-to-one time with you, so that they don't feel as if they've been forgotten.
Be patient with babyish behaviour. Your older child may ask for a bottle, want to be carried or, even if they are potty trained, start wetting themselves again. This is completely normal behaviour, so try not to let it bother you and don't punish them.
Expect some jealousy and resentment. It's almost certain to happen at some point. Ask for help from your partner, friends or relatives, so that you can have time alone with each child. This will help you balance the demands put on you.
