How to Build a Relation Between a Pet and a Baby

    Both babies and pets are quite naive to understand the deep meaning of the word, relationship. They cannot build a strong connection between each other on their own. It is our duty to help them in developing that strong bond for each other. As immature, they may end up in harming each other. Only parents can make the best introduction between them which will lead to a long cherishing relation that remains eternal forever. Here are some of the points that can be kept in mind while not only developing but also grooming the bond between your child and pet.

    A Great Introduction

    Every relationship begins with an introduction. In case of a baby and pet, introduction is the responsibility of parents. Before bringing your baby to home, try and bring his/her clothes, blanket or other things. It will help in making your pet become familiar to the newborn. Make sure that the first encounter of your child with the pet must be under your proper guidance. Cats are generally unpredictable in nature. So, in their case allow them to notice your new family member from a distance only.

    The Introduction of a dog with baby is quite complicated. Your close supervision is very much important in their case. While they both share their first glance, talk to your dog in a completely polite and normal manner for reassurance. If you do not receive any aggressive behavior from its end, then you can allow it to slowly see and sniff your baby. But do not allow licking because at this stage your baby is more prone to allergies and infection.


    It is true that cats and dogs get a little jealous with the entry of a new housemate or any new person in the house. As a result, they may get aggressive towards your baby. In order to show their jealousy, they will start giving various signs of aggression, such as nipping, biting, growling, pawing, raised hair, or downward-pointing tail. Their consistent negligence in using litter box and refusal for food are also the signs of disapproving your baby’s presence in the home. This kind of unwanted behavior from your pet’s end must be addressed with a firm ‘no’ from your side and its positive reactions must be rewarded. Generally, the very young and old pets require more vigilance. For example, a puppy will be still at its learning stage and full of energy to roam around and older pets cannot compromise on the attention of its caretaker.

    Taking the Friendship Ahead

    If everything goes well after three weeks, then you can include your pets in your daily tasks. You can take it around while feeding or taking care of your baby. Try to give ample attention to your pet even when your baby is around. While feeding your baby, you can offer your dog its favorite treat and also take it along with you for a walk. All the contact between your baby and the pet must under your supervision. While teaching your pet the manners to behave with your baby, you should also teach your baby on how to respect the pet. This way, they both can develop a strong relation between themselves.
