I'm 11 weeks pregnant and have two big pit bull/shar pei mutts and two cats. The pups are brothers who were abandoned in the woods when they were about 4 months, fostered with the couple who found them for a week and then we got them. They're a bit more than two years old. The cats were adopted at 3 months and are nearly 5 years old now.
The dogs have mostly only been around children at the dog park. One of my dogs (T-Bone) seems scared/ alarmed by toddler-sized children and the other (Porkchop) doesn't seem to mind them. They both have been around a friend's baby at my house before and were very interested in licking his feet. They both want to be close to my husband and I at all times. They're very cuddly and sweet. Porkchop is needier and prone to separation anxiety. Neither of them has ever bitten anyone. T-Bone has barked at children who run/toddle towards him. They still act quite puppyish occasionally and get over excited about walks and treats sometimes.
I'm wondering about other moms' experiences with introducing the new baby to the household pets. I don't think my cats will care about a baby but I'm a little concerned that my dogs will be weird. I'm especially interested in hearing about people who had home births with pets in the house. Thanks for any info!
