When you’re preparing for your second baby and you already have one little girl, she’ll have to adjust to the big change of having a little brother or little sister. Coming up with big sister gift ideas from a new baby can be a fun way to introduce her to her new role!
When you’re a new mom, your entire world revolves around your first child. You probably can’t imagine your attention being elsewhere! But when that new baby comes along, of course most of your quality time goes into taking care of the infant, which can be a huge shock to your firstborn!
But not to worry, because it’s a great opportunity to teach your older daughter how to be a big girl, how to be more independent, and how to process that newest family member.
And I’m not saying to bribe them with presents, but… a little gift for the new big sister never hurt anybody! It also helps form a positive association with being a big sister, that it’s something to be proud of and to celebrate!
And to warm them up to their younger sibling, why not say it’s “from” the new baby?
Okay, so this only really works if your daughter is in the toddler to preschool age range, but you still want to present it specifically as a new sibling gift. That makes it special and significant to the (let’s face it) life-altering occasion!
I’ve put together a list of the best big sister gift ideas to get you started. These are all so cute and precious, it’s hard to pick just one!
