Imagine (or remember) the day you find out that you are pregnant with the second (or third) child. A whirlwind of hormones fill you with happiness ... and some fear. You are looking forward to breaking the news to everyone, but you hold back and prefer to plan a 'different' way of telling the people that this new baby will also change their lives. Among them, your first child.
It all depends, of course, on how old your child is, but there are lots of fun ways to break the news. From a very large sign on the door of his room so that he can find it when he returns from school to a doll with the message: 'You are going to have a little brother'. But there are ways to make it more original and impressive.
Suppose you have two daughters. You tell them that you are expecting a baby but they still don't know if it will be a boy or a girl. Each one has its preferences. The older sister wants a baby brother. The little sister, another girl. How will they know if it is a boy or a girl? Prepare two muffins with their favorite flavors, but in the center, before putting them in the oven, add a little pink cream inside if it is a girl or blue if it is a boy. When the girls open the cupcake they will know what to expect. Don't miss the reactions of both. One, of course, will be very happy. The other ... not so much.
Children are transparent. They cannot hide their emotions. If they feel like crying, they cry. If you feel like laughing, laugh. If they don't like what you expect, they tell you and that's it. No half measures. On this occasion, the parents chose a cake to communicate to their three children (two girls and one boy) the sex of the baby they were expecting.
Some parents use a T-shirt, and on it the phrase 'You are going to be the older brother' or 'You are going to have a little brother'. There are those who write the sentence and help their child to read the message. You can tell them a story, created by you, and at the end explain that this story has come true.
The advice is to make the moment of the news special, so that they too feel protagonists. That they receive the message of 'hey, you're going to have a little brother and you're going to be very important and necessary for us.' It is the first step to avoid jealousy.
Take into account the age of your child. If you are only 2 years old, you will not understand very well what it means to have a baby brother. Until you see it, you will not get used to it. From 6-7 years old, the child already knows what it means. Go for more creative ways to break the news. From the age of 8, the child begins to want to be treated like an adult. Emphasize how important your help will be to them.
