I have heard from many friends it is a good idea to have your toddler receive a gift from the newborn baby to ease the transition for the toddler. I'm expecting #2 this July, and our DD will be 3y4mo when the baby is born.

Do you have any suggestions on what is a good gift for my DD from her little brother/sister when he/she is born?


I initially thought of a baby doll, but she already has a Waldorf baby doll that she adores, so I'm not sure giving her another baby doll would be the best right now. I'd love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!

what a sling or stroller for her doll?  maybe along with a sticker book or something like that that she can play with while your nursing/otherwise occupied with baby.
