I’ve been trying to find some books on birth that are appropriate for 4-year olds. I recently checked out a book at the library called My Mom’s Having a Baby. It’s aimed at children 4-6 years old. Super, Owen is 4. Great book. I was so glad I read the book on my own first. Does a 4 year old REALLY need to know how a baby is made? I don’t think so. I think it would be different if he was 10 and able to grasp the details, but wow. I couldn’t even read this book in its entirety without turning beet red.
So, on to more research. I found this lovely book on a parenting website that someone had highly recommended, especially if you are considering a home birth. Welcome With Love is told by the perspective of a brother waiting for his new sibling to be born. It’s beautifully illustrated and written so it’s not too graphic. Gives a great overview of the home birth experience. LOVE IT.
I’m driving to the Bay Area tomorrow to visit my family. My sis, Kat, is visiting from Germany with her hubby, Richard for a month. I haven’t seen them in a year, so we are all looking forward to a big family reunion! We are also celebrating my niece, Jianna’s 2nd birthday! Woo!
I’ll be back next week. Hope everyone has a fantastic rest of the week and weekend!
