Tips:

100% supervision
To state the obvious, never leave baby unattended. Ever!

Daily Activities
Daily exercise will still be very important for your dog. If a walk is not possible, keep their brain occupied. A bored dog is a mischievous dog.

Positive Rewards
Redirect unwanted behaviors if needed when you are feeding or diaper changing by calling dog to you.

Break Time
Dogs need a break too. Provide them a baby free zone where the baby will never be.

Don't Ignore the Dog
By keeping feeding times, walk schedule, daycare visits, & potty breaks the same, the dog will better adapt to the baby routine.
