First off, i am 38 weeks pregnant with baby #2. My 2 1/2 year old daughter and I had a meeting with the Parents As Teachers rep today. She told me that we (my husband and I) should buy a gift and give it to our 2 year when we bring the baby home from the hospital and say it's from her new baby brother. She said it's a good way to start things out and make my daughter feel more comfortable with her new sibling. I thought it sounded a little strange, but may consider it. Anyone else done this? What kind of gift did you get?

I did this when I had my second child. My oldest 2 are 5 years and 5 months apart. My second one was getting a lot of new stuff and my oldest wasn't getting anything. I got my oldest a transformer because that's what he likes. I think it helped a lot. I didn't do it with my third child but I couldn't afford to then. I don't know if I will do it this time.
