Oh, Brother (or Sister)
There's a lot to consider when anticipating the arrival of a new baby. From the purchase of tiny diapers and miniscule nail clippers to the selection of the latest bouncy seat and play yard, it can be overwhelming—even when the baby on the way is Number Two. When expecting a second child, parents are challenged by a consideration that they didn't have during their initial pregnancy: their firstborn.
While it's completely natural to be anxious about how an older child will respond to having a new little person in her world, in many ways parents have the power to shape the way she feels about welcoming ten more fingers and ten more toes into the family.
