One bit of advice I’ve received from other Mums is to have a gift from baby for Frankie & I’ve been buying little bits here and there to put into a gift bag which I’ll take in my hospital bag for Frankie to have when he visits me and baby Kev in hospital.
I’d been toying between buying Frankie the Vtech Kidizoom camera or an Amazon Echo Dot for his bedroom, as he loves Nannie’s, but Daddy didn’t think it would be suitable (& we both agreed hearing Frankie scream Alexa play Shotgun, play Minions songs 100+ a day wouldn’t be in anyone’s best interests) so we settled on the camera so he can take photos of baby & probably himself! I did a post on my Facebook page & there were negative comments about the quality of the camera but I don’t think buying a better digital camera would appeal to Frankie and he has one at nursery so we’ve gone for it and bought it on Amazon. Buy Kidizoom® Duo 5.0 Camera Camera here.
Additionally, if Frankie wants to print off the pictures of his brother from his camera, I ordered this little photo album off of eBay, he loves going through my photo albums so thought it would be cute to let him have his own. I’ll let him put stickers etc and decorate it. Buy Small Baby Boy Blue 6×4 Photo Album here. (also available in pink)
I found literally 100’s of ‘big brother’ type books online and in the shops but after asking on my Facebook & Instagram pages, the Pirate Pete and Princess Polly books seemed to be a firm favourite. Buy I’m a New Big Brother: A Pirate Pete Book here.
These tops came up on a sponsored post on Facebook and I ordered them with no expectations for quality but they actually are really soft and came quicker than the delivery time stated. I am going to order them in every colour. I can’t wait to stick them both in matching outfits for years & years! Buy Little/Big Brother romper and top here. Available in White/Black/Grey.
I got the ‘Big Brother, Little Brother’ hessian print from Frames That Sparkle on Instagram, I adore her stuff! Check her out.
Frankie has also picked out some little gifts for baby over the last few months, comforters, dummies & other bits. I’ve ordered two of these ‘Prince’ Bags from eBay, I am so impressed with them! Buy Prince/Princess Gift Bags here. Also available in Princess.
