When my son arrived at the hospital to meet his new sister she gave him a Luv Cub that he adored! He could feed it and it would respond to him - he was taking care of his "baby" too. Another idea is an American Girl Bitty Baby. My daughter, who is 2 1/2 received one for her birthday and loves her. You can order them online and choose from different colors of hair and skin tones. They're not the large American Girl dolls like the older girls have - they're actual baby dolls. For other holidays you can get accessories, which don't have to come from the American Girl line. Other brands fit and work just as well. Congratulations!
