The first child is always the most special for every parent. The subsequent babies are equally special too because, by that time, most of the parents learn to deals with it more effective. In a nutshell, irrespective of their order of arrival, babies are a gift of God, for parents. However, having a baby brother or sister is always not a welcoming experience for the elder sibling. Getting to know the unborn baby sibling with the help of baby scan clinic services is quite helpful.
Molly Woods was expecting her second baby after 7 years. Her elder son Ben always enjoyed all the attention from his parents. One day when the couple was dog-sitting Molly’s colleague's dog, Timmy. Timmy is a playful Golder Retriever who loved to cuddle with practically everyone. When Timmy came to stay for 3 days, the couple noticed that Ben was jealous of Timmy. Later they discovered that Ben was intolerant to sharing his parent's attention.
When Molly was pregnant with her 2nd child, she and her husband were very worried fearing the 2 siblings might not get along very well. Their neighbours gave them an excellent idea. They asked them to take Ben to their baby scan session as well. During the session, they also availed gender scan and it was revealed that they were expecting a baby girl this time. The doctor encouraged Ben to say hello to his little sister. They started addresses the little baby as a person itself and began to talk about her arrival and plans in this regard.
They, in fact, made Ben, in-charge of finding 2 suggestion as a name for his baby sister. After many suggestions and consideration, they all agreed to have Sandrine as her name and Sandy as her nickname. Eventually Ben started to get involved and even showed excitement about the arrival of his sister. When the couple bought the little baby home, Ben was very happy about it and even shed a few tears of emotion.
Though he playfully hit her once in a while, he does love his baby sister and is helping his parents take care of her, wholehearted. Needless to say their bickering, yet the loving relationship is all set to flourish in the future.
Sibling rivalry is common among children, due to the difference in opinion, biases of parents and other aspects. However, having a jealous attitude towards younger sibling from the birth itself is not a pleasant thing. Having some encouragement form parents through baby scan clinic is a wise way of building this bond better.
