For those with older kids, can you recommend any books that are good to help prepare for a younger sibling? DS is 2, so doesn't really understand what's going on, only that mummy's getting fatter

There's a House inside my mummy is a good one, my DS still loves it and bub has now arrived. He understood from very early on exactly what was happening though...

A third one to recommend "a house inside my mummy". DS turned 2 a month after DD was born & we read it all the way through my pregnancy & he knew what it was about & what was going on. We also have "too busy sleeping" about the new baby when it arrives. We didn't get it til after DD was born but it seemed to help DS understand. He loves reading it & reads it to me now.
