Hi! My three year old has a baby brother comign into the world very soon. In hopes of easing her transition to new life with a sibling, I was thinking of getting her a boy baby doll that has a sling and possibly a cloth diaper. That way, she can wear and change her baby boy along with me. I would ideally like to find a Waldorf type/natural material doll, that happens to cost less than my mortgage. ;-) Any suggestions? Any other thoughts or suggestions on helping her with this transition are welcome. Thank you!

Honestly, I would go for a gender neutral baby if you can- one she can pretend is a boy or girl. Like this one in red- doll&cur_index=&pcode=62 or here is a really great deal from the look of it-

To prep our little one, we read lots of books about babies, talked to the baby in my tummy, and talked about my older child's experience as a baby.

Do you have any good books on the topic? On Mothers Lap and the Sears books are pretty good.

I'd chose a gender neutral doll too. The Nova Naturals catalog (on their website too) has good images. Might give you a feel for the size.
