How can I help my older child be more comfortable with becoming a big brother?

Make Room for Baby

Getting ready to welcome a new baby can be time consuming. Even if you already have a child, having another baby can turn your world upside down. Sometimes you get so caught-up in the preparations that your older child can get lost in the shuffle. To help prevent this from happening, make sure to spend some quality time with your child before the baby arrives.

A great idea is to give your child's room a “big boy” makeover. By treating him like a big boy, you will have a great bonding experience, while helping him become more comfortable with being a big brother. Get him involved with picking out a new wall color, decorations and furniture. If you are looking for fun ways to spice-up the new room, you should check out some great options from Haba. They have a wonderful selection of whimsical rugs, chairs, shelves and more.
