Feb 19, 2018

Are you expecting a new baby and wondering how to ensure a harmonious transition for your furbabies (also known as pets)? Look no further! Home Postpartum Services is here to provide you with the support and guidance you need for a smooth integration of your furry friends and your newest family member.

Why Furbabies and New Babies Need Extra Attention

Welcoming a baby into your home is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming for your furbabies. Dogs and cats, who have been the center of attention until now, may feel confused or anxious with the arrival of a new family member.

It's crucial to address this transition proactively to ensure a positive environment for everyone in your household. With the help of our expert doulas, you can make this process much smoother, reducing stress for both your furbabies and your family.

Expert Guidance for a Successful Integration

At Home Postpartum Services, we understand the unique dynamics between furbabies and newborns. Our doulas have extensive experience in assisting families in Baltimore with this delicate transition, and they are ready to support you every step of the way.

Creating a Safe and Secure Environment

One of the first steps in integrating furbabies and new babies is ensuring your home is safe and secure for everyone. Our doulas will work closely with you to identify potential hazards and make necessary changes to create a harmonious living environment.

We'll guide you on pet-proofing your home, including securing cabinets and electrical outlets, setting up baby gates, and separating certain areas to provide your furbabies with a safe space away from the newborn when needed.

Gradual Introductions and Positive Associations

Introducing a new baby to your furbabies requires careful planning and gradual introductions. Our doulas will help you develop a step-by-step introduction plan that ensures your pets feel comfortable and positive about the arrival of the new family member.

We'll provide you with strategies to create positive associations, such as associating the baby's scent with treats or rewards, and gradually increasing supervised interactions between your furbabies and the baby.

Understanding and Addressing Behavioral Changes

It's natural for pets to exhibit behavioral changes during this transition period. Our doulas will educate you on common behavioral signs to look out for, such as restlessness, attention-seeking, or withdrawal, and offer effective strategies to address these changes.

We'll teach you positive reinforcement techniques to encourage desired behavior and support you in helping your furbabies adjust to the new routines and changes in attention.
