Getting Ready to be a Big Brother or Big Sister

September 17th, 2007

A sibling can be a lifelong friend, but sometimes they get off to a rocky start. Big brother or sister may see the new baby as an attention stealer and a little jealousy is not uncommon. These simple ways to get your child ready for their new big kid role can help lessen the sibling rivalry.
Start getting your child ready for the new baby around the second trimester. At this point, there is less chance of miscarriage, but still plenty of time to make adjustments.
