Before Judson was born I put together a Big Sister Bag for Braylen. I wanted her to be occupied in the waiting room and I wanted her to have things to do once she came back to visit. In my head, she wouldn’t really need the bag because she was going to be so excited and enamored by her little brother. Yeah, right. That lasted all of about 20 minutes. I was so thankful to have this bag of some of her favorite things.
I started putting it together a few weeks before he was born, but I didn’t give it to her until the morning we went into the hospital.
And here’s a look at what we included in her bag.
It’s easy to create your own and highly recommend having something like this on hand when you’re welcoming another baby. Especially if your first-born will be spending time at the hospital.
3. Disposable Camera- This was such a treat for her, she used up two camera while waiting and meeting the baby for the first time.
4. Lovie for the new baby- I actually let her pick this out and give it to him when she met him.
