Sibling Care: Have You Made A Feeding Basket Yet?
Did you know art supplies aren’t just for mommas (though these were for fabulous women lifting up a lovely birthing momma friend)? Art supplies (the washable type) are extra fun for new siblings. When we meet with new-again mommas our postpartum team ALWAYS recommend feeding boxes. And sometimes we even make them!
Feeding boxes are perfect for moments when both babe & siblings need your attention. Keep them in a parent-friendly spot to grab when you’re about to sit and feed your new miracle. Kiddos can draw a picture for baby, journal about their day, or write affirmations for self (such as I’m a great sister!) Have you ever tried something like this? We’d love to hear!
