Good picture books about a new baby

post #1 of 11

Hi all - does anyone have any good picture book recommendations that I could read with DS1 to start getting him used to the idea of there being a new member of the family? He loves his bedtime story, so I thought it would be a good way to incorporate some positive perspectives. Thanks in advance!

We have this one and love it! Shows breastfeeding and baby wearing. Board book with simple sentences and gender neutral kids.

Since my daughter is a little older, I was thinking of checking this one out: Babies Don't Eat Pizza: A Big Kids' Book About Baby Brothers and Baby Sisters

 

Has anyone read that one?

My 34 month old son absolutely loves this book! He has the smaller board book at my parent's house, and when we visit them always asks for the babies book:)

Found a few recommended for siblings expecting twins, so I'll probably pick these up:

I'm Having Twins
My Twins are Coming Home
My Twins' First Birthday
