Big Brother and Big Sister Milestones Picture Frame
How sweet is this Big Brother Milestones picture frame! The poetry for both the brother and sister frames focus on the older siblings being an important part of baby’s life. It reads, “Although you’re tiny now,/You’ll soon be big like me./ I’ll save these pictures here,/To show you how we used to be./Like the times I would hold you,/And sing my favorite song./You would smile at me,/One day you’ll sing along.” I tear up just reading the poem thinking about my daughter and baby sister as they grow.
Sibling Handprint Frame
As big brother or big sister help to get Baby’s handprint done, you can chat about the time when you captured their first handprint. You can even have the older sibling compare his or her first print with Baby’s. The Big & Little Handprint Frame comes in any combination you need. Big brother and big sister can proudly display the handprints in their room.
We Already Love You Picture Frame
Before baby arrives, you can purchase this We Already Love You picture frame, available with a girl or boy silhouette, slip in an ultrasound picture, and have big brother or big sister display this in their room. They will surely feel involved as they picture themselves bonding with Baby early on.

The Big Sister and Big Brother Photo Album and Camera
When the new baby arrives, everyone wants to snap a picture. Help big brother or big sister feel involved by arming them with their own cameras and photo album. There are still places out there where you can take film cameras to develop photos for the siblings to then put in their special photo albums.

My daughter loves her Baby Alive doll, which comes in several different ethnicities. They actually soil their diapers after you feed the baby a bottle, and it makes the cutest suckling noises as it drinks the bottle down. The older sibling can practice changing diapers and then when they are ready can give it a try with the new baby.
