Video: Managing With a Brand-New Baby

This video was produced by S.K.I.P. who have an amazing website, packed with resources, and an app, for parents of under 5’s. Make sure you check them out.


Viewing time: 5m 34s

What you’ll learn: 

  • Slowing things down and spending time with your baby can help you feel calmer. Going out everyday and being ‘busy’ might create unnecessary stress
  • Adjusting to a new baby will mean changes. Embracing  these changes can be rewarding for your family
  • Letting your baby set the ‘routine’ (term is used loosely!) might help relieve the pressure of trying too hard and will settle into ‘normal’ when you and baby work it out together
  • Managing with two – or more! – children means evern more challenges, however…
  • Involving the sibling(s) in the tasks for a new baby can make the job easier and can also help other children feel included
