Help your dog feel the love for the new baby

I'm not a dog person. I'm so much more of a baby person. My best friend has a dog (a big dog) and he licks her baby's face and runs around and it makes me crazy.

Oddly, though, the two of them get on like great roommates.

Bella loves him and he adores her. But there were some heavy adjustments in the beginning and some still. If you have a dog, you can ease your pet into the idea of having a new baby around before you give birth.

Allow your pet to be in the same areas your baby will be spending a lot of time in — say the nursery and living room. However, if you haven't already, start to make sure he's not jumping up on furniture because he could knock over something with your baby on it or knock something onto your baby.

If your dog is super calm in the nursery, give him tons of love and rewards.

I've read that you can get a baby doll that cries to get your dog used to you carrying something new around but that sounds very odd to me. Still, I have heard that it can help.

If your baby is born at home, keep your dog out of the area until after the birth and then take out a blanket that smells of your newborn for him to sniff. Do the same if you're coming home from the hospital.

Use caution. Now that you're a parent, your baby's safety comes first. I've seen babies who were hurt by dogs because the family "assumed" they'd eventually calm down and accept the baby. Not all dogs and babies can co-exist peacefully. It might be sad but the baby comes first. If it's been months and your pet has not adjusted, is still jumping up or trying to nip the baby, it's time to find him a new home.
