I'm pregnant with my second child and was wandering if anyone had any advice for preparing my toddler for a new sibling. We love books - does anyone have any recommendations for good books to read? She'll be 2 and a half when baby arrives.

Any advice much appreciated smile

We had 'There's a House Inside my Mummy' - I wasn't a fan but the kids quite like it now, although my DD wasn't much interested when I was pg with DS (she was 21mo when he was born).

I also had Topsy and Tim New Baby, which I like, but the kid in the book's a bit older so can help with bath time etc.

If your eldest will go to nursery, then My Busy Being Bella Day is good.

I also love the Sarah Garland ones about doing every day things - Having a Picnic, Doing the Garden etc. It's Mum and little girl and baby and they are nice easy books about normal things - it's all reassuringly chaotic.
