How to Prepare your Pet for a Baby
Heather Zimmerman, M.D. Boys Town Pediatrics
If you have pets, introduce them to the scents that are going to be around the new baby, the blankets and clothing, things like that.
When your baby is actually born, it would be really great if someone could actually bring home one of the hospital blankets that has been swaddled around your baby.
Bring that to your animals so they can smell the baby before you actually bring the baby home.
Preparing your pet for a newborn is important. Heather Zimmerman, M.D. at Boys Town Pediatrics, provides tips on how to make this family transition easier.
