One must remember first that the family companion is also a baby in the house. I suggest letting the dog become familiar with the baby's room, equipment etc prior to baby coming home. If you are the type of family that dotes on your companion cut back gradually before the baby arrives. Once baby is born, have husband bring home a blanket that has been on your baby. It will be filled with the scent of your new addition. Once home do not scold your dog for being curious. Dogs are pack members and the new baby is foreign and sometimes perceived as a threat. Never leave your dog unattended around your new baby, no matter how good he may seem. As long as you remember to be fair and exercise good common sense, things should go smoothly for your family. Hope this helps and good luck.
