Dachshunds Protective

Dear Family Pet Expert,
Hello. I have 2 Dachshunds and one lab mix. I am due in June and often my husband and I wonder how my Dachshunds specifically will react to the baby because they are very protective and when kids come around they act funny. For instance, my one dachshund likes to "hump" little kids when they come around. I am not sure what that really means, but then my female dachshund does not want anything to do with kids.

What do you recommend for introducing new babies to dachshunds? Your advice is very much appreciated.
