Best advice for introducing big sis to our new baby
I was so nervous about my older daughter feeling jealous of her new little brother. I had heard horror stories. Then my pediatrician gave me the best advice. He said don't let the first introduction be her walking in on you hanging out with the baby because she'll feel replaced. He said whenever Neve visits the hospital or meets the baby for the first time, have her see her parents alone first and then go with one of her parents to pick up the baby from the hospital nursery or somewhere else. It made all the difference. Neve felt like our helper in introducing our new baby to the world. She felt like part of the team not an outsider who had been replaced. She even thanked the nurses in the hospital for her baby.
