Question for the Parents/Mommas

Not sure which section this question belongs - so I'll start here. Mods FF to move if it's suppose to be elsewhere...

FTM (first time mom) & expecting a Daughter middle to end of May , I'm super stoked but am also concerned with the dogs, attention wise. Exercise aside, how did you keep a healthy attention balance in your home since a baby, newborns especially are extremely demanding.

Also, how did you incorporate the introduction process? Should I start now familiarizing them with baby items? They're very curious about the carseat, crib & other items we've gotten. I let them fully investigate to their hearts content.

I'm just nervous about juggling a new baby, dogs & my health... I recently went through intense ankle surgery due to a severe car accident (right before DH & I got pregnant) & been going through intense PT but getting better day by day.

Well you know I have several dogs. I have 2 daughters and both came by c-section so I had major surgery to recover from aswell. I don't really know exactly what I did as it just flowed with my dogs and we never had issues. They saw the baby stuff come and none seemed to care and when I brought home my first one we introduced her to the dogs one by one ( this was when I had multi dogs together) and then just went on with life. With my 2 nd child my dogs were used to kids so it was nothing new to them. I don't really do much special my dogs just go with the flown of my life and changes have never been anything to make a deal about here. As for exercise I played more ball with them and letting them just run and chase toys until I could move properly again. Each dog may be different and some dogs may need more to adjust or be comfortable so just watch how yours are reacting and taking it in.

How did you manage healing from CS, caring for you LOs & dogs? I'm guessing hubby helped out quite a bit? But still kuddos!

we introduced them to baby stuff before baby was there so they could check it out without that baby. made the swing swing, so they could see it moves ect.If you want boundarys best to set those up now and get them used to it like it the babys room or certain areas are off limits set that up now, baby gates work great too. make sure there basic obedience is up to par, down , stay , are great as well as No or gentle are good to learn as well. Each dog is different and only you will know when its safe to introduce them , Id make sure they are well walked or played out before its time to meet baby so they are a little more relaxed without the pent up energy. my family was able to bring home a baby outfit with the babys scent on it so they could get that smell and get that over with. Im assuming your hubby will be around too , so making sure they still get that 1 on 1 is important so they dont feel pushed out of the pack and still have a place in the home. Maybe he can get away for an hour or so and get them out for a run or long walk each day or even just a game of fetch. Hopefully everything goes well for you and you wont be down for long and will be able to get out with them , walking will help get that baby weight off too so beneficial to both you and the dogs. Something you may want to start now is getting the dogs used to walking with a stroller, mine freaked over strollers at 1st so best if you dont have a baby in it lol. They will learn quick though , get run over once or twice they learn where they can walk. and of course as I am sure you know always supervise when the dogs are around the babys, I know mine wouldnt hurt a child on purpose but they can get hyper and startled and make injure a baby by accident. Best of luck with the baby cant wait to see pics
