Hi there,

 

16 weeks preggo and time to study! I have a 3.5 year old whose 4th birthday is 2 days past my due date. She is very, very wonderfully attached to me, a little shy, and doesn't like independent play yet. Her whole world has been her in the center of our lives. I am so afraid of the negative impact the new baby may have on my sweet girl. I know there will be positives but I'm daunted by the potential negatives. I'm looking for excellent book suggestions on the subject of how to best help a sibling accept a new baby. AND your personal ideas and suggestions based on your experience.

 

Thank you!!

i didnt have any books i read, but talking withthem and making thier job as big sibling so special and important is a good first step. letting them go to doc or mw appts and really be a part of it. i also got just about every big sibling book out there and read to them as much as possible. good luck finding the other books too!

Thank you Chloe's Mama. Those are good suggestions! I am a huge fan of reading non-fiction on every subject that matters to me, and I'm having a hard time googling sibling books for parents to read. Arghhh. :)
