Pets & Babies can go together like Peas & Carrots
Most couples have dogs. Or pets in general. I read an article that said that most couples my age start with dogs as their “first born children”. Elsa is definitely our first born. Yes, we had two cats first, but they don’t count. Cats can be fairly self reliant so it is just not the same.
This might not be so much about advice to introducing pets to babies, but rather what we didn’t do and how it all played out.
