Because with the undivided attention of the parents, it's over , when two kids scream for mom. This is for one or the other firstborn as the expulsion from paradise, to make the child during his pregnancy to his ally, can help parents to relax the situation.
Most worried parents were that their child does not like the younger brother or younger sister and will be jealous . These reactions can indeed exist. However, you can prepare the older child well for the new situation.Take your time
However, one should not say to the son or daughter all too early that offspring are on their way. One should wait for the first time of pregnancy , until there is no greater, otherwise parents would have to explain to the child, why only now once again no offspring comes. The best way for parents to say is, 'I have something very important to tell you. As you may have noticed, my stomach is getting thicker. That's because there's a kid growing in there. '

"All this shows the child that it's not suddenly behind.Do not overdo
However, the right balance is important because parents can overdo it with their Attention . The child must have learned to play alone, without the mother or father constantly sitting next to it.
Nevertheless, it may unsettle the first-born when a second child is traveling . Parents need to be clear and say that they like the older child just as much as they do now. It is also good to show him the positive changes that accompany a smaller sibling. "You have a great role: You are then the older brother or the older sister , you can do a lot, what the baby can learn from you." However,
parents should not expect too much from themselves. You can not double your time and energy if you have two kids. Therefore, one can not always avoid that the firstborn after the birth of a sibling also times have to put back.
