One of my favorite traditions with my children is celebrating their “zero” birthday in the hospital. The baby may be oblivious to the celebration – but older siblings have an incredible amount of fun with this welcome party! I got the inspiration for this from Pinterest and put my own spin on it.
While perusing Pinterest I saw an adorable pic of a newborn and a cupcake with a zero candle – and I wanted that photo! Weeks before baby was due, I went to the bakery and found the perfect cupcake, which I placed in the freezer. When I packed my hospital bag, I also had a checklist of the last minute things that would need to be grabbed, like phone chargers and my cupcake! Then I bought a zero birthday candle and used some puffy paint and glitter to dazzle it up a bit (tutorial is coming soon!). The candle went into my hospital bag. That was the end of the Pinterest idea… but not for me.Cupcakes and gifts make meeting the new baby extra special! #EveryMomDay Click To Tweet
I have also read about giving sibling gifts to the big brothers/sisters, and so I decided I would not just have a cute cupcake for a photo-op, I would have a BIRTHDAY PARTY! “The baby” brought her big sisters 3 gifts each: a movie, a game, and an activity book – all things that they could use and enjoy while visiting their new baby at the hospital, so they would not get bored! And we let each girl pick out two gifts to bring the baby, too. It took a little extra prepping, but not much! We kept the gifts in a black garbage bag in the car – so the kids would not see them, and Dad ran out to the car after baby was born and before visitors arrived, to set up for the “party!”

It made the day extra special for the kids. They got a new baby, and we celebrated with a party where everyone got to open presents and enjoy cake. The kids loved it, and I loved watching them enjoy it. It’s a tradition we enjoyed with baby number 4 as well – and now that we are done having children myself, I hope to share the idea with other mommy’s to be!
How did you celebrate a new baby with older siblings?
