Sibling Preparation

 

MamAmor dolls are wonderful tools to help you prepare your child for the arrival of a new sibling. They can help you to introduce your child to the basics of childbirth and breastfeeding, bringing the whole family into the process, learning through play.

Choose a MamAmor doll to help your child learn and understand:

 

  • The changes that you'll have through your pregnancy
  • How your baby lives inside you womb (how she eats, functions of placenta and cord)
  • The birth process (how is your baby going to be born, where, when)
  • The needs of a newborn (sleep, cry, play)
  • The importance of big brothers and big sisters (to avoid sibling rivalry, to promote cooperation)
  • Baby care (help changing diapers, gentle touch)
  • Breastfeeding 
  • Safety and new routine

 

"When I found out I was pregnant with my second child I immediately knew I wanted my daughter to be at the birth. She would only be 2 1/2 when her sibling would arrive so I started researching methods of preparation for the birth.  She watched the video of her own birth, read books and talked a lot about what to expect.  When I came across MamAmor Dolls I had that moment of "why didn't I think of that", it's genius!  We role played with the doll before the birth.  Soon enough, "having a baby" was my daughter's favorite game to play. The doll and my daughter attended the birth of my son. After the birth she often had the MamAmor Doll nurse her baby. The doll is as beautiful as the pictures and of great quality.  My daughter has played with the MamAmor Doll for almost 2 years and it's still in great shape. Thanks MamAmor Dolls for helping my daughter prepare to be a big sister!" -Amber Campanelli  

 

"My daughter is lucky enough to have one of her beautiful dolls and she takes it with her to my local earth friendly store and shows and tells people about it all the time :)"
