12. Play with your other kids

Picture 13 of 13

If you already have toddlers or kids around, take time to also play with them. Give them attention and show them that you love them even when a new baby has arrived. Doing so will prevent your children from feeling that you love them less because there is a new baby. You should also be sensitive to your children’s feelings as they are also adjusting to the new baby, and be aware that they may feel like they're being replaced. Try buying them a small gift "from their baby brother/sister," so they not only feel included, but they also feel bonded to the new baby.
