Big Brother School gave us lots of great ideas for preparing T for the arrival of his baby brother.
Here are a few:
*Take a picture of you and your child to the hospital. (We chose our pictures last night!)
*Have big brother buy something for the baby. (He's requested a visit to the hospital gift shop!)
*Read lots of books about siblings. (I'm sooo all over this one!)
*Pack a bag of goodies so big brother will have something to do at the hospital. (We're on it!)
*Spend lots of time with your child before the baby arrives. (Always!)
Here are a few more from me (the not expert!)
*Get some big brother gear! I couldn't resist! The first is from Children's Place and the second is from Etsy.
*Buy gifts for big brother, too! (We are planning one for the hospital and one for home.)
*Talk, talk, talk about feelings! This is a big change and we sooo want the lines of communication open! Mommy is talking about her feelings, Daddy is too. Hopefully that will carry over with T!
We are less than a week and I am trying to get all of our ducks in a row! Feel free to share anytlast minute advice!
