One of the ways many parents help their toddler adjust to the new baby is by getting a present for the toddler from the new baby.
This can be presented in the hospital after the toddler has met their new baby brother or baby sister or after you bring baby home.

Big Sibling Activity Box
Kids will love looking through the box and finding new assignments to do from (and with!) their new little sibling.
Big sibling coloring shirts
There’s one coloring shirt for big bro and one coloring shirt for big sis. They can color the shirts with washable markers to design them again and again OR use permanent markers to keep their original design forever! Kids LOVE decorating their own shirts and these are too cute!!!

Star wars theme big brother shirt
Big brother rules shirt – If you have a little Star Wars fan this would be a fun shirt to order and customize with the year the new baby is born!
Sibling photo book
Make an adorable baby book for the big sibling. Choose photos from when you were preparing your toddler to be a big sibling all the way through the baby’s birth. Put them together is a gorgeous photo storybook for the big sibling to cherish.
Submit your child’s name and get a cd of fun kid’s music that mentions their name 98 times! They will be thrilled with this thoughtful gift from the new baby.
Pillow pets are fun toys to begin with, but they can make a great gift from the baby to the new big sibling too. What we love about these is that it can give the new big sibling something to hug and squeeze to get all their tightest hugs out before holding the baby. It can be a great way to practice the difference between how you hold and hug a baby and how you hold something else. There are lots of different pillow pet animals to choose from, you can find characters from various shows and even some scented pets!
There are lots of jokes made about how the second baby doesn’t always get their baby book finished in the same way that the first baby did. I love this idea to use the big sibling book as a way of allowing the older sibling to create a memory book for the new baby. They will love getting to be a part of that process, and it’s a great way to spend one-on-one time with the older sibling after baby has arrived as you work on the book together.
As you prepare help your toddler adjust to having a baby sibling, I hope these little gift ideas can help your family!
