  • When I got preggo with my DS my DD was 2, I involved her in EVERYTHING I could. Doctor appointments (that were not in depth appointments) the ultrasounds, shopping, and I constantly talked to her about her having a lil brother on the way and she had to be my big helper because the baby was going to need ALOT of my attention (I'm a single mom). I even bought her a lil boy baby and gave it to her when she came to see us in the hospital. It may seem a lil weird to you to give your son a doll but I have a friend that has 3 boys and the older 2 each got baby dolls when the next one was born. And statistics show that boys who play with dolls tend to be better fathers. Good luck to you.
