New sibling anxiety

New Sibling Anxiety

It is fun being an only child, but it’s also pretty cool to have someone to play with! Little ones can feel a little anxious about the arrival of a new family member but may not know how to talk about it. Reading books about welcoming a new baby, or that include stories about brothers or sisters, can help ease any anxious feelings. It can also help open up a discussion, or introduce the topic if they aren’t already aware.

Here are a few of our favourite sibling books:

My mum makes many things, but now she's making the most important thing of all . . .

Of all the wonderful things mums do for children perhaps the best is providing a baby brother or sister to play with.



Check out our Welcoming New Siblings pin board for more of our books that have a sibling theme.

All books featured will be available to purchase from all good bookstores nationwide.
