Adding a new baby to the family can be an exciting time for everyone involved. However, it can sometimes offer challenges for older siblings, especially those who have been the only child before.
Even children who are over-the-moon excited about a new sibling can have some anxious feelings about such a big change.
Sometimes a little gift can help to ease the transition and remind the big sister that she is still just as special, but she just has a new role at home. You can surprise your daughter with these items when you make the announcement that you’re pregnant or anytime leading up to the birth.
I’m actually going to give my daughter her “Big Sister Gift” as soon as we get home from the hospital with the new baby. I’ll have it all wrapped up and hidden away before we deliver of course, but then I can tell her that the new baby brought it especially for her.
