Can I have a Big Sisters party?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
After dd2 was born I had a playdate type gathering, and a cake picked out by dd1. It said Congratulations you are a big sister. No gifts or anything, some refreshments and finger foods. dd1 got a few stickers etc...but no really big gifts.

Now I am having baby number 3. Can I have a party for both the big sisters and let them pick a cake? No gifts....just an opportunity to see new baby and the big sisters.

What do you all think?

That sounds like so much fun, what a great idea!

I usually get a present for the older kids "from the baby" - something small like a book, puzzle, or inexpensive toy - but I have never thought to through a Big Sibs party. I bet they really appreciate that.

i think that would be great. actually i think i might do something like that with the my boy as this is number 3 for me too!.

I think it would be great for them to celebrate them getting their roles in the family and to celebrate them too! just so everything isn't about the baby

Very cute idea; I may borrow it too. How long after the birth did you hold this party? I wonder just when I'd feel up to it...

What a neat mama you are! I may steal the idea

I like this idea, but wonder how you do it so it doesn't just become a gathering where everyone ooohs and aaaahs over the baby the whole time? I mean, that seems to defeat the purpose of having something special for the big sib, no? I suppose since my ds is 6 I can see a lot of his friends being quite excited to meet the baby but then the focus is on the baby? Def intrigued by the idea though!!
