For those of you with multiple children, did you give your older child a special gift when the new baby arrived? What did you give? My son is 26 months old and his little sister is expected to arrive at the end of May. I'd like to get him something special at the hospital (or shortly after his sister is born), but I have no ideas. Any suggestions?

Why not clothing that says Big brother or Books... Or maybe he gets to hold his sister first (with help)... My mom did that to my brother when my sister was born, He got to hold her first and any one who visited had to say "Hello to Beau " (my brother) they had to spend some time with him asking him about this little sister...

I got a little soft toy hedgehog when my younger sister was born ( my son has it now) and when my daughter was born in Feb I got my son a big floor jigsaw and he loves jigsaws at the moment. I think it helps to get them something they love to play with. He loved it and he loves his little sister to bit, though I'm sure the jigsaw sweetened the deal lol
