Do you have any pets?
Are you worried about their reactions to the new baby?

4 dogs. No. I have the best dogs ever. I just had to put my Aussie down. She was amazing. She was spayed at four months but helped me raise three puppies, 7 babies, train goats, protect chickens. I love my dogs more than I like most people.

We have one dog named Oscar. He was fine with my two girls so Im not worried about him. Well, he will eat poopy diapers so I am worried about making sure he doesn't get those!

I have a dog, 2 cats, and a guinea pig. This is our third go-round at the whole newborn thing so I'm not worried at all. Our animals are used to it by now.

We have 2 cats that still have their claws. I was really nervous with my son, but they are fine with him. Mostly they just try to avoid him. So I'm not worried about them and the new baby.

I have one dog, a yorkie. And, I am a bit worried about how he will act around a new baby. He's just so hyper and has no boundaries.

I love my cats, but I despise the hair!! Really, there isn't much of an issue when the baby is a newborn though. Once they start having tummy time and rolling around, we put down a blanket. Vacuuming can only get so much, ya know?

We have two great danes and a cat. Our dogs are great with kids but our girl is clumsy and hyper at times. They like to lay on the couch for 95% of the day so we're not too worried. Our cat hates all kids except for my step-son he probably won't be too thrilled with a baby but he'll get over it. He just keeps to himself if he doesn't like something.

We have a dog named Snoop. I'm not too worried. He was my DH's before we got married and appearantly he did great when his girls were born.

We have a cat, who is incredibly tolerant of crazy children. We have a kitty door that goes down into the basement so he can go hide whenever he wants. My puppy can get a little wild at times, but he's never bitten my kids or my nieces, so I'm not worried there. But he can be very clumsy when someone is playing with him.

We have two dogs and a stray cat we've informally adopted lol. I'm not worried. We had the dogs before the birth of our first dd and they were very good about it

We have a dog and a cat, and they were both fine with Connor. The cat ignored him and Jack (the dog) we prepared before we brought Connor home. DH brought home a baby blanket that was used to wrap Connor in, and let Jack sniff it and lay with it a few days before we brought him home.
