How to stop cat from jumping on baby
Establishing boundaries is very important when you have both a child and an animal in the home.
These should be started early, long before baby comes home from the hospital. Our dog knew she was not allowed to enter the nursery unless invited in. She could sit in the doorway, but nothing else. When we aren't in the nursery Charlie is always right next to me. If I need to get up and take care of something, he either goes into the jumper or into his play pen.
So a good rule of thumb is to not leave baby unattended, but that's not always realistic. If you have to leave the baby alone, take the cat out of the room. A squirt bottle works wonders for pets who get near things they shouldn't. One quick squirt on the backside will teach them a quick lesson.
