When our boys were little, we got them each a baby doll to help prepare them for the new sibling. Towards the end of each of my pregnancies, we would give them the doll and let them practice being gentle and show them how to hold the baby. I think it really helped them get ready for the new baby and gave them some confidence when it came time for them to hold their new brother or sister. Even though Little Miss is our last baby, I still want her to learn to be gentle with little ones. Plus, she LOVES baby dolls! Nenuco has created a line of soft-body baby dolls that allows children to practice feeding, bathing, dressing and nurturing. I received two of these dolls for Little Miss.
The first was the My First Nenuco Kisses. This cutie gives kisses when you press on her foot. Little Miss has really been into giving kisses lately so this doll was perfect for her! She needed a little help pressing the doll’s foot in the beginning but once she got the hang of it, she could do it herself. She laughed every time the doll made the little smacking sound and felt the little puff of air. At 16.5″ the doll is the perfect size for carrying around and Little Miss loved pushing it around in her little shopping cart.
I also received the My Little Nenuco doll.
This doll features that sweet new baby smell and comes with her own pacifier. One thing I liked about this doll is that her hat and booties are molded plastic so I don’t have to worry about them falling off and getting lost. The paci is also attached which is wonderful. We have lost so many doll accessories in the past. I will say I didn’t notice a baby smell at first but once we got her out of the box, I did start to smell a baby powder scent that was really sweet. As I said before, Little Miss loves dolls but it was love at first sight with this one! It has become her new favorite and she carries it everywhere.
She especially likes giving her baby it’s paci.
Once again, Nenuco has provided my girl with some great baby dolls. They’re cute and cuddly, and Little Miss loves taking care of them. And even though my boys have long since left their sibling prep dolls behind, Little Sister has a way of getting them to play along with her and her babies. She seems to have them wrapped around her tiny fingers!
Does your little one have a favorite doll? How do you help prepare a soon-to-be big brother or sister?
