    Hi ladies,
    For those of you who are pregnant with number 2 (or more), will you buy the baby's sibling(s) a present from the baby? Some of my friends have done it but wasnt sure if it was the "done thing". And for those who have done it before, did it help to break the ice a bit with a new baby suddenly showing up? My little man is 4.5 and well aware that there will be a baby coming soon but I wasnt sure whether I should still break the ice for him. Any other tips on how to make sure the first born accepts the new baby would be greatly appreciated.
    xx

    My son is getting a lego set from his little sister when she is born. He is 10 years old so there is a massive age difference and has always been the center of our attention so don't want him to feel left out when his sister arrives.

    In the lead up whilst ive been pregnant hes had a few 'im going to be a big brother' books and 'theres a house i side mummys tummy' which he loves to read.

    Also bought him a baby boy doll with nappy and clothes and milk bottle which hes names 'baby charlie' (his baby brothers name to be lol) and he likes to change and feed it lol.

    Hes also attempted to feed it crumpets and take it on the 'big toilet' for a 'stand up wee wee' hahaha so i will need eyes at the back of my head when Charlie arrives haha!

    I remember getting a present when my brothers were born, and I've got a Lamaze doll for my lb to give her, and a toy train for her to give him.
