Noah and the Baby Doll!

At baby group this week, Noah decided he wanted to play with the baby doll, this is a first for him, as he usually just plays with the bricks, balls and cars!

It all started with the pram, he was pushing it around the room and then stopping every few seconds to kiss the baby doll’s forehead. I found this to be incredibly cute, he has never done anything like that before. I don’t know if it was because it was a baby doll or just something, who knows what the little people think about?, but it was extremely cute.

Towards the end of baby group, he was sitting on the chair in the story time corner, cuddling baby doll and giving it big kisses on the forehead!

This made me think about how Noah will be when his little brother/sister arrives, I never really thought about it before hand. I have obviously hoped that he will like him/her and that he will be good with them, but apart from that I have never seen Noah around a baby nor seen him be that affectionate towards anything little before.

I think it goes without saying that I will be careful with the newborn around, making sure that Noah cannot hurt them and obviously the furbabies also. I have been thinking about Noah too and the fact that I dont want to neglect him and his needs, I know when baby is tiny it will sleep a lot in the day (hopefully) and therefore I will have time to play with Noah still and read to him in the daytime. I just have this worry that I wont split the time up properly, thankfully Daddy will want cuddles with newborn too so that will free me up for Noah time. I suppose its just finding the right balance and making sure everyone is happy – including me and Daddy!

  • I had the same worries when I was expecting my second, and then my third, but it has been fairly smooth. There is a little bit of jealousy here and there, but I try to make sure I give time and affection to all of them. While they argue sometimes, my daughters all love each other, and the eldest is very protective of her younger sisters. I think as long as you’re giving time to your son, and watching out for any changes to his feelings/behaviours, you and he will be totally fine. I bet he will really love having a sibling.

  • I’m super worried about having enough time to dedicate to Ethan… and as a result (well, also down to other things as well, like being anxious and PND) we’ll be waiting until Ethan is in pre school before even trying for the next one. So he’ll be over 4 and in School most likely by the time it comes along!
    I’m sure you’ll manage just fine though. Most of my friends have two now, and they all get by. It’s bloody hard, but they find they still have time to spend with No.1 and that No.2 is always very entertained by watching No.1!

  • I remember LB loving baby dolls, he got it from his sister. I bought him a little boy baby and a boys baby buggy and he loved it, daddy was horrified with my purchase, LB is 3 and a half now and still loves it 🙂
