Big Brother Now: A Story About Me and Our New Baby
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Now I have a baby sister. Her name is Abby. Now, everybody tells me, "Jake, you're a wonderful big brother!" I don't know how to be a big brother.
When a new baby comes into the family, Jake's world changes! Being a big brother is hard and confusing at first and brings lots of changes to Jake's routine. On top of everything else, Jake has to be patient and share his parents and Pop-Pop. But with some time, Jake starts to like having a bigger family and all the good and fun things that come with being a big brother.
A note by psychologist Jane Annunziata, PsyD, offers new parents a wealth of guidance on preparing their family for a new baby, both before and after the arrival.
