comment What are some ways to get an older sibling to give a younger sibling a little space?
Great comments! I like the idea of letting her hug us instead of her little sister - we'll have to try that. Thanks!

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
I think it may depend on your child. For whatever reason, our first child hated the expensive stroller we had. After 5 minutes of screaming, we would pick her up out of it, and end up having to carry her and push a stroller. When she got big enough to sit up, we put in her in one of those cheap "umbrella" strollers (for $15-$20) and she loved it! It was way more portable, it still had a visor to block the sun, and we had a happy baby. That doesn't answer your question, but it's another thing to think about.

comment Is baby talk helpful or detrimental?
Here's one downside to baby talk. We had a 3 year old when we had our second baby. Kids in the 2-4 year old range pick up on everything, so our 3 year old used exaggerated baby talk when talking to our baby. It got annoying very quick, and a lot of people noticed how our 3 year old spoke to our baby. That quickly decreased the amount we "baby-talked" to our baby - not for the sake of the baby (which your question is directed at), but for the sake of the older sibling...

I was more concerned with safety. Since she is over a year old now, and if we use a lighter blanket, it sounds like she would probably be okay with it...

@Liutauras - excellent info. Again, I wish I would have known about these years ago :)
