7. Provide Safe Spaces

Providing safe spaces is one of the most important tips for introducing your pet to your new baby. This means creating separate areas for your pet where they can retreat and feel secure. This could be a comfortable bed or crate in a quiet room or a designated play area outside where your pet can enjoy fresh air and exercise.

Ensuring that the designated safe spaces for your pet are located in quiet areas where they won’t be disturbed by the baby is crucial. This will help reduce any anxiety or stress your pet may experience during the introduction.

Ensuring your pet has enough toys and activities is also crucial to providing safe spaces. This can help reduce their stress levels and prevent destructive behavior in the home. Consider providing puzzle toys, chew toys, or interactive games that will keep your pet busy and happy.
