I did too, I packed in my hospital bag, a "big sister" necklace for my oldest daughter and some chugginton trains for my two year old and told them there baby sister had brought them presents. I think it's important they don't feel left out, a lot of family and friends brought the older two gifts as well, even something as small as sweets went a long way in them not feeling pushed out.

My friend has Just had a baby and when we went to visit we had all the 3 older childeren small gifts as well as the baby one.

i did! i think it is a big thing for little ones to get a present when another is born!

i have 4 kids of my own and a step child and i have come to realize that toddlers feel left out or sad because its been all about the new baby.
