t.co/4qMkEAa5YQ Prioritize family time. Set aside time each day to play, read or simply sit with your child. Find quality child care. Although an older sibling can sometimes care for a younger sibling, don't rely on an older child as your only baby sitter. Be careful about asking a new friend or partner to watch your child. If you need regular child care, look for a qualified caregiver who can provide stimulation in a safe environment..
