Mommy Moments – Welcoming A New Sibling

mommy moments

Today is the last Friday of the first month of the year, thus, this is the last installment of our “new” series this month.Our theme today is Welcoming A New Sibling. When you are about to add a new member to your family, how do you prepare your first born? What was your experience?

I am excited to read about your stories this week! My daughter was 2 years and 10 months old when our son was born. We just explained to her that she is now a big sister and that she has a new brother. I wasn’t really sure how she would react but she was pretty excited with the coming of the new baby…

but there were days, especially during the 1st month that she was just jealous of the baby. When we were breastfeeding her brother, she would also come to me with her bottle and she would also lie down next to me… or if I am cuddling the baby on the rocking chair, she would also come to us.. just like this picture.

I was glad that as days passed, she became a loving sister.

She would read books for him and play with him…

It takes a lot of understanding and patience when there is a new baby… I am thankful that my daughter handled it pretty well…

Share your story with us! Join us at Mommy Moments!

  1. All their pictures show how happy and how positive your eldest welcomed her new sibling. There are of course times of jealousy, but that is one art we, parents, should be skilled of. Happy MM!

  2. they are so sweet!

    I like this week theme! I too saw a hint of jealousy on Evan, even when I was still pregnant so I guess it happens on many kids.

    Happy MM!

    Wow this are cute and sweet shots of them…Happy mommy Moments. Mine is up…

  15. Sometimes children just don't undertstand that the new born baby is not replacing her/them w/c they sometimes could feel left out.Your Kyla is smart enough to understand that her little brother is not replacing her but a valued new member of the family that she needs to value him too.
    I like the photos of the three of you.

  16. Kyla is every inch a loving sister to Toby. 🙂

    Pareho tayo mare we already have a pair. 🙂

  21. I love looking at all the pictures of Kyla and Toby here, especially the last one. I'm sorry I wasn't able to join this week's theme because Justin is an only child; the theme doesn't apply to us.
