How precious. I can't wait for grandkids. As for the dogs I think it depends on each individual dog. What are the temperaments? Will they argue over baby? I thinking letting them sniff is good. I think that if you keep them away by force that might be a game changer. They need to learn to respect the baby and I think that once the newness wears off they will sniff and walk away. Baby crying? I think that will be a different scenario until they understand the baby is okay. Congratulations!!
