  • I did, just a few little things while I was buying the other kids presents. I didn't wrap them, but I didn't want him to feel excluded LOL. We had him on 12/27.

  • I would i think t helps with bonding. I want my girls to feel like they are big sisters. There excited about helping out with him. That way no one feels left out new babys take alot of attention and sometimes older children may feel left out. I say there is no harm in getting them excited letting them know mommy could use there help. I think its a good idea to let them pick something out for him.

  • I don't, but my 's family buys me things for chrsimtas for the baby if I am pregnant more like clothes lol. I was pregnant in 2004 with my first and they got me clothes and toys for the baby. They got the baby stuff instead of me I didn't care though because i love baby stuff lol. Then in 2007 I was pregnant with my second and again I got stuff for the baby. His side of the family is the only one that does that other than that no I wouldn't do it. This time I just found out I am pregnant I told my family, but not his yet so even if I tell them today with it being so closse to christmas I probably wont get anything for the baby this time around because it is so close to christmas and they are probably done shopping or almost done.

  • I do. I even wrap them because I love wrapping presents. I just put baby on the tag. I usually buy other people stuff off their registry or clothes and chew toys.
