Your pet was probably one of the first additions to your little family, so it’s fitting that you include them in your pregnancy announcement. They’re also eagerly awaiting the arrival of your baby and can sense the changes going on in your body. Although like a human sibling, they might not be looking forward to not being considered the baby of the family anymore.
If you want your dog or cat to be camera-ready for your announcement photoshoot or you want them to wander in front of your family wearing a bandana or sign announcing your news, you should make sure you have the best props possible. These props should be easy to put on—and stay on—your pet. Plus, they should be comfortable. You don’t want Fido or Fluffy to look or be uncomfortable. That’s why we rounded up the best pet photo sharing props for pregnancy announcements. There are two bandanas options and one sign option. The props are colorful and get the message across immediately. After all, you don’t want your aunt and uncle to be confused by your announcement and leave weird Facebook comments on your post.
