Fun Ways to Integrate a New Baby Into Your Supersized Family

Having a new baby is exciting…and stressful.

Not only are you tired after having a new baby, but you are trying to balance attention among all the children you have. They still want your time and consideration.

Figuring out fun ways to combine your newborn and your “old-borns” can ease the burdens between all the needs of your family members.

This might mean loosening the reigns on what you allow your other children to participate in or creating new ways to integrate your new baby into your large family routine.

Here are some successful ways I’ve integrated my new baby into my supersized family’s life after pregnancy.

If you want to see how to incorporate your large family BEFORE birth, see that blog post here.

5 Ways to Have Fun Introducing Your Newborn Baby Into Your Large Family

1. Diaper Changing Fun

Have them bring you 2 diapers at each changing. Make sure they have their own “baby” to change.

2. Snack Time Fun

Have them prepare a during breastfeeding drink/snack for you…and share it with them.

3. Teenage/Friend Bonding Time

Have your old-enough teens take the new baby on a short walk with a friend. They’ll feel like grown-ups!

4. Slumber Party

One by one, allow each child to be your “night” buddy. Instead of waking up daddy for help, have them sleep on a floor pallet next to you. When baby wakes up, wake them up to help you!

5. Play Dress-up

Personally, I don’t really care what a new baby wears…as long as they are comfortable and safe. Assign a child a day of the week to “dress up” baby. As long as it’s not unsafe, allow baby to wear whatever they dress them in!
