It’s so easy for my practical mind to just leave everything as is for the second baby. The baby will never know, right? While this is true, creating a different environment will help develop a new relationship with the new child/sibling. We did this not just for us as the parents, but mainly for my daughter. Though she got a new big girl room, I wanted to differentiate her old room from her sister’s room. I also wanted her to realize that it was no longer her baby room, but a new space to welcome her baby sister.
This didn’t mean that we had to make major changes or spend a fortune. Simply switching out a few pieces all while keeping the wall color and a few large items the same changed the feel of this space to what is now a classy, vintage room for a brand new baby.
