A new baby. A new beginning. Not only for you, but for your first child. Your child is used to getting all the attention from mom and dad. And that changes, of course, when a new baby comes. How best to deal with that, I'm going to help you.
How do I tell my child?
If you are expecting your second child, it is best to tell the news to your first child as soon as possible. That way he has more time to get used to the idea that he or she is going to have a little brother or sister. If you have a toddler, you'd better wait until it's visible that you're pregnant. Otherwise, your toddler doesn't understand that something's going on because he doesn't see any change. If you tell me, be as honest and clear as possible. Just as parents sense that children have something to hide, children feel the same way about their parents. No one knows your child better than you. That's why we can't tell you exactly how to bring it, because every child reacts differently. However, we can give you some tips.
Of course, a lot of things are going to change. Including a nursery. If you're going to buy stuff for the nursery, it's good to involve your child. This way, your child is already attracted to the new baby. Make sure your child learns to share. Because from the moment the baby is there, jealousy would arise anyway. If you teach him or her how to share in time, they'll be better at dealing with it and will be better at learning to let go. Talk to your kid a lot. Try to explain as much as possible that when the new baby is there, not much will change. Especially the love for your child.

Even though a jealous toddler can get the blood out from under your nails, you have to realize that this is normal behavior. Toddlers are not verbally strong enough to express their emotions.
