Since I will be expecting my second child soon, I thought it would be a good idea to teach BG1 what it would feel like to be a Big Sister. That’s why I’m happy I stumbled upon the Baby GoGo doll by Little Sib, which is tailored for older siblings who need adjustments to having a new addition to the family.
The doll is gender-neutral and comes with a blanket and a book called “Baby GoGo Goes Home” where the new baby is brought home to its siblings and they all learn to adjust and see just how wonderful having a little baby in the house is. I definitely wanted to give this a try with BG1 to help her learn to care for the baby and see if she was willing. She actually took to it very well. I showed her how to hold the baby, supporting its head, and how to keep it warm with its blanket and how to burp the baby. We even read the story together and she really enjoyed it.
Overall, I liked the doll just fine, it does what it’s supposed to do, but I would have liked it to have come with a bottle so kids can learn about feeding the baby. But, of course, accessories like the diaper bag and sleeping basket are sold separately. Also, there’s no ability to change the baby’s diaper, and though I wouldn’t expect a 6 year old to change the diapers, it would have still been nice to show her without the mess of a real baby. I liked how the doll was cute since sometimes dolls tend to try too hard to look life-like that they look kind of weird. Yes, it does have its limitations, but for what it needs to do in helping little children prepare for a new baby, it does the job just fine.
