My son is about to turn 2, and I'm due to give birth 3 weeks later. Bubs isn't talking yet, so I'm not getting any feedback from him on what he does/doesn't understand. I'm starting to put baby stuff around the house (pack-n-play, swing, etc.), and we've read books and played with a baby doll. He met his newborn cousin a few weeks ago, but seemed unimpressed. (Although from our role play with the baby doll, he did give the baby a "hug"). Any other suggestions, what worked for you? He and I are so close, it breaks my heart that all of this is going to happen and he won't really understand it (especially being away from me for a few days while I'm in the hospital).
