When you are pregnant for the second time one of the most important challenge is to explain this news to your first child. You have to make sure they should not be confused or in secure. Make it simple and beautiful so that they can be excited about the new sibling. It's comparatively easy if your first child is big enough to understand everything easily. Let's check out some quick tricks to share this new change to your eldest child.
Hiding the news from your child is not a good idea. This will make them more confused and puzzled. Just be honest with all the details. Say something like, "There's a baby growing in my belly - once he's big enough he'll come out and be a part of the family." Explain them as simple as you can. Make them feel excited about the new addition of the family and tell them the interesting things like "now you will have a friend to play with"
Once you know your due date, start counting days with your child and tell them that the baby will arrive after a week or so. This will keep them prepared and they won't be surprised.
After the arriving of new baby your first child should not feel ignored and deprived of love. Accompany your child in whatever you do for the new born, shopping to choosing dress for the little one. Narrate them some story about the responsibility of elder sibling towards their little brother and sister. Make them feel important. Never ask them to share their stuffs like toys with the new baby, they might feel jealous and start hating the new baby.
Create a safe and secure atmosphere for your first child as the sense of dejection or stress can be a hindrance to their proper emotional growth.
