You see, in reading all literature on assimilating your new baby into the family without causing your existing children to have a meltdown, some of them suggest that the existing child be gifted with a little pressie from the new baby. You know, so they feel a little special too, while the new baby is seemingly getting all the presents and attention.
And I really like this idea. Because the last thing I want is for my little girl to feel left out or sad about the new baby.
I've taken this idea one step further by buying a little gift from Fern to the new baby; its a Flatout Bear - this one, in this colour:
I'm really happy with this purchase, I've already talked about how much Fern adores hers, and its a lovely symbol from her to her new brother or sister.
So that's one down.
But I've been wracking my brain, and I cannot come up with anything special or significant from the new baby to Fern! I don't want to buy some random toy just for the sake of it. But the more I look, the confused I get... and this is where I'm hoping you come in! Please help me choose the perfect gift -- it doesn't have to be expensive, but it does have to be special. What would you get? Thanks in advance x
