Tips for Introducing Your Pet to a New Baby

Meet and Greet

Once baby is born, first have a family member or friend bring home something such as your infant's blanket or beanie to familiarize your pet with his or her scent. For the initial face-to-face meeting, your pet will likely be most eager to see the new mommy first, so have the proud papa hold the baby during this reunion. This might also be a perfect opportunity to bring home a new toy for your pet, to further mark the special day in a positive way.
