Caroline is now old enough to understand that a baby is coming into the family and that she will be a big sister. That being said, I can only imagine how rough the transition can possibly be – she’s had our undivided attention for almost 4 years and now there is this little baby with wants and needs. It will be a transition for all of us, that’s for sure, but at the very least we want to make those first few days a happy time for all and make sure our oldest daughter feels loved and love towards her new baby sister.
I have received a lot of advice from friends on getting Caroline a gift from baby sister, and ways to make her feel special while some precious moments focus on the new baby. Of course these are just part of the big picture, but it’s definitely fun online shopping for some adorable “big sister” gifts! Here are just a few of my favorites:
Baby Sister/Little Sister Outfits – $52.00
I’m the Big Sister Photo Album – $12.62
Berenstein Bears New Baby Book – $3.59
Chevron Doll Diaper Bag – $65.00
How did you help make the transition to baby #2 a smooth one?
