I love this idea! Definitely good to make the big sister feel special and important! 🙂 I also like the idea of giving them each something(“from each other”) she can “keep”, a necklace or something like that, depending what your budget is.

I think this is a good idea. And possibly a doll that she can take care of at the same time with you as you take care of your new Dirty Delete.  


She will feel very part of the process if she can change clothes, brush hair, rock and put her own baby to sleep while you do the same (or similar).


This worked great for a friend of mine. Her Dirty Delete felt very important to haver her own baby to take care of.

@figgnewton:  or maybe new supplies for her existing dolls? clothes, bottles, hair brush etc?

@figgnewton:  Way back in the 80s when my brother was born, my parents did exactly that. Back then I had a favourite doll that went everywhere with me (I was just over 3 years old), so they put together a doll diaper bag for me. I don’t remember it too well, but I’ve seen pictures so I know it had some new doll clothes (these may even have been newborn clothes that my brother ended up being too big to fit into! I definitely remember having some “doll clothes” that were real baby clothes), doll-sized cloth diapers and baby carrier, plastic baby food/bottle set, and some spare hooded towels, wash clothes and receiving blankets. This way I could do with my “baby” everything that my mom was doing with the real baby – dress it, bath it, feed it, change it, carry it, swaddle it, etc.

@figgnewton:  I think it is a good idea.  I also have some friends who got the big sister a “gift” from the baby like a pair of earings or a toy or something.

Very cute idea, and gives me ideas for if and when I ever get pregnant again.
