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!
Good picture books about a new baby
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?
saw this one at a midwifes office today, def fold older kids, but I'll show the pics to my DD
