Short-circuit sibling rivalry! When you know a new baby is coming into a home with an older child, make a personalized t-shirt for the older one(s) using plain t-shirts and fabric paint. I have 2 nieces expecting (#4 for each), so I will be making 6 t-shirts for the siblings.
If the parents have decided on a name, you can say "so-and-so's BIG brother" (or sister), or "I'm the BIG sister!" (or brother), if you don't know the name. When the baby comes home from the hospital, each older sibling gets a present from the baby, a t-shirt to wear.
