When you decide to have another baby seven years after your first child is born, it’s definitely a unique situation. Your oldest child probably already has established routines and schedules, and quite frankly, they are used to ruling the roost. As an only child myself for the first seven years of my life, I get it. A new baby can mean all sorts of changes for kids who is used to being the only child.
In just a few weeks, our new addition will be here, and my husband and I have been working hard to make sure our daughter is excited by including her in different ways. We’ve already brainstormed some ways to keep her engaged once the baby is here, too. We don’t want to put any big responsibilities on her, it’s not her baby after all, but we do want to give her real tasks that let her feel important and needed.
Read stories to the baby.
Since Ayva loves to read anyway, it makes sense to have her reading to the baby every day. Not only can she pick different titles from the library, but she can share some of her favorite baby books from her bookshelf to read to baby brother! Tons of research shows that reading to babies helps to foster their language development, so this is a very important job for a very important little helper!
Keep track of the baby’s growth and milestones through WeeSchool.
The WeeSchool app is an all-in-one parenting smart app that does everything from track milestones, allow you to capture memories in the Journal, and include resources to help make bedtime, bath time, and other rituals easier. Since Ayva is so tech-savvy, it makes sense to have her keep manage the WeeSchool app and keep Terrence and me informed!

Take daily pictures of the baby.
I’m sure there will be no shortage of pictures of Baby Brother, but making Ayva the official family photographer with her own little point and shoot camera will give us a different, very special, perspective.
WeeSchool’s Journal feature makes it fun and simple to snap pictures of the baby to chart his growth and capture those milestones in action. And with a couple of taps, you can share the pictures on social media, send them to grandma or friends, or archive them in a gallery to download later.
Keep track of supplies and let us know when we need to purchase more.
My girl loves making lists, so putting her in charge of baby supply inventory is a perfect fit. She can mark off when we need more diapers or powder, and keep Baby Brother fully stocked!
The creator of Baby Einstein, Julie Clark, is back with a new educational experience for babies and toddlers. WeeSchool is an app that uses today’s technology to enhance lives for babies and toddlers. WeeSchool is what comes before preschool, and gives parents the peace of mind in knowing that their little one is meeting all of their milestones.
It’s more than just a milestone tracker, though. WeeSchool has a curriculum for babies from birth to age 3 that is all about play for babies and their adults. There are Play Plans with activities, recommendations for the only toys you really need, adorable videos, ebooks, as well as other features to make engaging baby easy and fun!
