Re: Any other families doing this?
No, we don't do that. We still gift to our neices and nephews. IMO, it would depend on how much you are spending on your ds. If money is so tight that you can only spend $20 on your ds, then sure, don't feel guilty about not buying for your neices and nephews. But if you you can spend $100 on a 1 year old, I would forego buying my son a gift and buy small gifts for the neices and nephews just so there is peace. Your 1yo will not know any different.
