11. Practice Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement training involves good rewarding behavior with treats, praise, or other positive stimuli. This method is often used with dogs but can also be effective with other pets. By rewarding your pet for good behavior, you can help them associate the new baby with positive experiences.

For example, you can reward your pet when they calmly approach the baby or respond to your commands while in the same room as the baby. This will help your pet learn that good behavior around the baby is desirable and will lead to positive outcomes.

In addition to positive reinforcement, it’s essential to ensure your pet’s needs are met during the transition. Make sure your pet is receiving enough exercise, attention, and mental stimulation, as this can help reduce any stress they may be feeling.
