When I had Grayson, something I was worried about was how the transition would be for Leighton and Amelia. You may already know that we are a blended family so this transition was a little different than when Matt and I got married.
I worried about how the girls would feel welcoming a sibling but on top of that, welcoming a baby brother into the family.
A tip I got from a lot of people was to have the baby “buy” a gift for their older siblings. After thinking on it for a while Matt and I decided this was definitely something we wanted to do for the girls, for a few reasons. For starters, we felt it was a great way to ease the older two into having a sibling. And secondly, these little gifts would make them feel really special, and it would give them something to do while Matt and I were busy with a newborn!
I rounded up some of the gift ideas Matt and I threw around for the girls, and I’m sharing them with y’all!
Is this something you’d do for your older kiddos? What types of gifts would your kids like to receive from their baby sibling? Let me know!
