My daughter is almost 3 now, and since she turned 2, she has both cherished and despised being a big sister. One of the best pieces of advice I received while pregnant with my second child was to get my daughter a doll that she could be a mommy to. This turned out to be important advice.
When we first received the My First Nenuco with Sleep with Me Cradle to review, Gia was thrilled.
All of the dolls that she has had have been 10 inches or smaller. Nenuco’s doll is 16.5 inches long, and my daughter is large enough to comfortably snuggle with and care for her doll. The doll itself is well made, with a soft, huggable body, and removable pajamas. The bed frame was easy to assemble, and is transitioned from floor to bed quickly and easily.
When Gia received her Nenuco doll, she was really excited to see that she could attach her babies bed to her twin bed. We do have a guardrail that we had to take down to make this work. My daughter is just 3 years old now, and although we had no problems with her falling out of bed, we will probably use the doll bed on the floor until she is older. This transition is simple, and we are really happy that she can still use the doll bed without it being attached to her bed.
This is an excellent doll for any young child to have. What makes this doll unique, is the conversation that it invites with your little one. Any child that becomes an older sibling will need to adjust and often imitate what they are seeing take place. If I’m occupied caring for Simon, my daughter will often grab and doll, and join me in caring for her own baby. This would make a wonderful gift for any child who is looking to mimic their parents, and nurture their very own “baby”.
