Our daughter was born 10 years after our son. Needless to say he had only-child syndrome. We made sure to have a "big brother" party for him the day we brought her home and they both got presents. I think we got him a t-shirt and some other stuff saying "best big brother" or something to that extent. Typically the newborn is going to be flooded with gifts and the older sibling is going to sit there grinding his teeth. You can imagine how that would set off the relationship in the wrong direction. I encourage you to actively make sure your son knows how important he is as your son and her brother in the "new" family.
I'm not quoting idiots who promote unsafe recovery strap techniques anymore. :miff:
