I know there are a few of us in this transition with these LOs... and I know plenty of us have expressed some fear/anxiety about it.
So my question is- are you planning on doing anything special to make the transition easier on your LO?
Those of you who are on to baby #2, 3, 4 or more... did you do anything special to prepare your older kids for a younger sibling at any point?
I was thinking of getting my DD a new doll, and some baby stuff to go with it- so that when I am busy taking care of the new baby, she can also take care of her own baby (if no one else is there to distract her). I just asked my MIL to make a doll sling for her, so that she can wear her doll just like I will wear the new baby. DD has shown interest in dolls anyway- she rocks them and totes them around sometimes- so even if the "new baby" doll isn't as successful as I'd like, I'm sure she will play with it now and then anyway. I'm just wondering... would you give her the doll before, during, or after the birth of the actual baby?
