Make a nursing basket for an older sibling.

When baby number two arrives, the older sibling can sometimes feel left out or jealous. A creative idea I learned a few years ago was to make a “nursing basket” for an older sibling, for when the new baby arrives and most of your time is preoccupied with breastfeeding the baby. The idea is to make it special and only bring it out when you are nursing.

Some ideas to put in the basket are:

  • small toys
  • books
  • snacks
  • crayons & coloring paper
  • play-dough
  • stickers
  • flash cards
