Happy birthday -- your toddler is 2! Thinking about baby #2? Introducing a new baby to an older child is always tricky, and bouts of crankiness are inevitable. Try reading books together about bringing home a new sibling, like Babies Don’t Eat Pizza by Dianne Danzig. Spend time around any babies in your family so she learns how to touch them gently. And, if she’ll be moving out of her crib or into a new room, make the change at least four weeks before you’re due so she has time to adjust.
