    At the ELC store, you can get this one about pregnancy called "There's a house inside my mummy" - v cute!! I got mine at Megabox but I've also seen it at Bumps to Babes in Central...

    There are 2 books by Joanna Cole for older siblings. One for kids up to 3 or 4yrs and one from 4-8years. I ordered from ShopinHK, just order the age appropriate one.

    Suv, what kind of doll did you buy for your son? We are expecting #2 this fall and my son will be 30 months so a bit older, but he obviously has no concept of another baby coming his way soon. I like the doll idea, but not sure his daddy will like him playing with dolls :)

    seriously> tell your hubby to take a hike!

    one of the HUGE pet peeves i have is the stereo-typing we put our kids through starting a such a young age!

    every woman i've ever met has said how much they want their husbands to nurture their childand help her take care of it, but god forbid we teach our boys that using a doll!

    i get so angry when people comment on my son's painted fingernails, 'oh, you look like a girl! what a girlie thing to do!'...he's gone from thinking they were pretty to being embarrassed and demanding that i remove the polish right then and there, even though he spent 20 minutes deciding what colour he wanted! it's not a big deal. so he's got some colour on his fingernails???

    sorry, had to get that out of my system.

    any doll will do, but if you can find one that comes with "extras" like bottle, potty, nappy etc that's even better as your son can help his baby when you help yours.

    thanks for the advice...i think a doll would do wonders for him!
