I had the same issue, as my son was born on Aug 02 & daughter Oct 04, so son just mist out, I opened a Junior ISA for him and saved for both, son received £1,800 on his 18th and so did my daughter for her18th.

It’s the parents responsibility to sort out and not for the oldest to take on this responsibility.
