New Sibling Anxiety
It is fun being an only child, but it’s also pretty cool to have someone to play with! Little ones can feel a little anxious about the arrival of a new family member but may not know how to talk about it. Reading books about welcoming a new baby, or that include stories about brothers or sisters, can help ease any anxious feelings. It can also help open up a discussion, or introduce the topic if they aren’t already aware.
