Hi there,

It's likely that I'll be in hopsital for a while before/after the birth of my baby.

I would like to put together a little bag for the big sisters! I'm thinking of the following items and I wonder if anyone had some lovely ideas to share?

A short note reminding them that I love them v much and can't wait to be home.
A new book (to help with the relatively long journey they'll have to visit me
A voucher for the coffee shop at the hospital (the much loved Starbucks)
Some snacks

That's where my inspiration ends. . . .

That's a lovely idea, I'm 33 weeks and have a 14 month old and was thinking of something similar, I wanted to put some little presents in a box for him for when we have people coming to visit the new baby with presents so that he doesn't feel left out. smile

We bought our DD (7) some nice headphones to use with her iPad - thought it would be useful for when baby came home which it has indeed! My Mum bought her a necklace with a circle charm on that says big sis that she really loves too.
