' Ifelt it quite timely with a new royal baby and even a new baby in my own family that I share some writings about how to cope when a new baby arrives. I meet many new Mums who ask if I have any tips on how to cope with the other children when a new baby arrives. Older children might find it hard when a new baby arrives. With all the focus on the baby they might feel left out or ignored. You might see a change in their behaviour. They may be more clingy or griz- zly, or will more than likely test the boundaries more. The novelty of hav- ing a new baby in the house seems to wear off quite quickly with younger children, and what starts out fine often ends up very stressful -- stress that the new Mum doesn't need. So preparing as much as possible beforehand is just as important as after the baby is born. Here are a few tips for how to prepare children for a new sib- ling: Start talking about our'' baby when your pregnancy is starting to show -- nine months can be a long wait for little people. Show them their baby photos and talk about their birth, where it was and if Mum had to stay in hospital for a few days. Make any changes well before baby comes. Things like moving from a cot to a bed, or car seat to booster. Read books together and answer any questions honestly. Involve them in choosing things for the baby. Talk about how they will be able to help out and welcome baby to the family. Once the baby is born: Focus on the other children when they first visit -- maybe someone else could hold the new baby so Mum's arms are free to cuddle. Help them to hold the new baby as soon as possible and take photos. If they want to, ask them to help; eg getting things ready for bath time, choosing baby's clothes. But don't push it or worry if they're not interested, just provide the opportunity. Have something planned for them to do while your focus is on the baby. Having a few special toys set aside, which are especially for this time, is a good idea. As much as possible, when you are giving the baby attention be aware that you need to be giving the other sibling attention as well. Make time each day to do as much as you normally did with them. If you used to get down and play with them on the floor, then make sure that you continue this. There will be times when the baby is sleeping and not needing your attention. Use these times to be interacting with your other children. Also be firm about how they behave around the baby, that they must be gentle, and explain and model what gentle is. Tell them stories about when they were born and show them their own baby photos. When visitors arrive to see the baby, make sure an equal amount of attention is given to the other children. If Grandma only has eyes for the new baby, then let Grandma know what great things the other children have been doing and get the other children to show Grandma the baby. Retaining things of their own -- making sure that everything doesn't get handed down to the baby. We as adults have things that are our own, so it is important for chil- dren to have things that are their own as well. When visitors arrive and want to help out, instead of taking the other children off your hands (unless the other children are eager to go), get the visitors to do the washing, cook- ing and other household chores that need doing. It isn't easy coping with having a new baby and bringing them back into the home. I always say to parents: Think about what is must be like. Put your- self in your child's shoes. They have had all the attention from their parents all their life and then, all of a sudden, someone else arrives and takes that attention away. So it is really important for them to feel a part of everything that hap- pens. They need to feel important and responsible. Good luck.
