Presents?**

I'm due 22 days with my 2nd boy and wondering if anyone bought their first born a present from the 2nd when they were born? My son will be 2.5 years old so wondering if anyone has done that and what's 'appropriate'? Just want some ideas really

I've never heard of people doing it. If you want to that's up to you.

I would buy him a "big brother" present.  Kinda celebrate him for becoming a big brother.

He already has a big brother tshirt, we used that to announce our pregnancy :) i was thinking a big brother badge as he will think that is great lol I'm lost for an actual present though I don't wanna buy him like an everyday toy like a car or something I definitely want it to be special but still.able to play with from his new brother I'm just stumped as to what would fit that description

My sister had my niece who was 5 1/2 when her baby brother was born get him a teddy bear to give to him. And I remember my mom telling me that when my Lil brother was born (I was 2 1/2) I gave him a teddy bear. So maybe just a little something, no need for a big gift

You could get him something to help with his brother or something he can do with his brother, like a big brother shirt or a book he can "read" to his brother. My daughter is 3 and very much aware her brother is coming and wants to be involved with everything.

That would be nice he does love cuddling his stuffed toys. A bear saying big brother or i love you is a great idea :) thanks I'm off to a start haha
