The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion, but it also means many changes within a family. Adjusting to a new brother or sister can be especially difficult for the older sibling. Bayhealth’s Hello Baby class is designed to help children accept their new role.
Open to youngsters between the ages of 3 and 6, the program will explore the child’s feelings and fears about having a brother or sister in the family. In addition, the children will learn basic infant skills so they can participate in the care of the new baby.
The program, which is offered four times a year in Dover, includes:
- Discussion about the new baby
- Practice diapering and holding the child’s own stuffed animal or doll
