When looking for big brother/big sister gifts sometimes it's hard to find that perfect item. Sure you can purchase toys or other items, but what about something they could have fun with from the start of your pregnancy which includes them and be educational at the same time?
Thanks to author Julie B. Carr they are able to learn a little bit about baby everyday with the book Making Me: The Pregnancy Activity Book for My Big Brother or Sister. At the beginning of the book you are able to write in the big brother/sister's information, and the activities in the book actually start at 2 weeks 0 days. For example let's say I'm 27 weeks 0 days. You write in the date at the top and there is a cute little saying from baby to mom. There is an Activity for the siblings to do that day which is to pamper mom! Rub her belly with lotion.. The book includes color pencils and a ruler so they can see how big the baby is everyday. It's a great way to have the older sibling feel included in the pregnancy.
If you are a working mom and at your desk a lot then the Countdown to My Birth: A day-by-day account of pregnancy from your babies point of view may be just what you are looking for to make those long work days a little brighter. The small compact book props up perfectly on your desk and comes with day to day accounts on how baby is developing. For example week 27 says "I need some more room inhere, so I have to push your uterus up into your rib cage." This is exactly what I am going through at this very moment. I love reading about how my baby is developing day by day. I keep mine on my computer desk in my room, so I can look at it everyday.
I would recommend either book to any expecting big brother/sister and mommy to be. It would make the perfect baby shower gift and help the big bro/sis feel special too.
