    Hi. How are you doing? I feel very sorry to hear about your infertility. Sometimes, it happens without any reason. A lot of people experience unexplained infertility. But I'm glad you are taking this seriously now. You have spent enough time TTC. it's time to move forward and do something about it. Surrogacy is a good idea. It sure will solve all your problems. The place you plan on visiting in Ukraine is a good one. They won't disappoint you. It would be great if you share your experience here with us. Good luck. You will be a parent soon.

    Hello Chikyala,
    Preparing for a second baby is exciting and nervous for both parents and the old sibling. While you have to prepare yourself for this second pregnancy, you also have to convince your first baby for the new member as it will be difficult for them too.

    Well that’s a tough task but one can manage it quite well by following certain rules or not exactly rules but you can prepare your first child for the birth of his/her new sibling?

    Tips for preparing your older child for a new sibling:
    • First, you need to counsel your older child or ask him/her that if he wants a sibling or not. Respect their decision and give them some time if they say no. When I asked my son about the same, his answer was unexpected as he said yes. ‘Mommy, I want! All my friends have a sibling. So, I also want one.’
    • Do not ever say to your child that I am going to have a baby. Tell him ‘He/she is your baby, I have one and now, the second one is yours because you need him/her’. Make him realize that new sibling is coming for him/her and he will be going to look after the baby with mom and dad.
    • Ask him and show him how you eat food on your own. In this way, the older one will also learn and will be a role model for the younger one as well.
    • Read to your older child about brothers, sisters and siblings bond..
    • Give your child a doll so that he or she can learn the skills of a caretaker through role-play activities.
    • Look at your older child’s infancy pictures together and tell the story of his/her birth.

    I hope this information will help you in boosting your confidence and will prepare you and your child for a new family member.
