Including Your Baby’s Brothers and Sisters

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 05-11-2007

Your baby’s brothers and sisters can help him grow and learn. Include
them in activities with your baby. This can help them get along better
together.

You and your older children can sing a song or read a story to your baby.
The baby will enjoy this.

Your older children can help you at the baby’s bath time. They can help
when you are changing his diaper.

A brother or sister needs to be old enough, mature enough and aware of
how to take care of your baby before you can even consider leaving him
with an older brother or sister, even for a short period of time. Most older
brothers and sisters must be at least in their teens and have had a lot of
experience handling the baby under your direct supervision before you can
consider leaving them alone together.

Playing together

Playing with his brothers and sisters lets your baby learn new things. He
may learn how to touch, watch and listen in new ways. He may learn to
imitate in new ways.

Playing with his brothers and sisters helps teach your baby how to do
things with others.
