Re: Preparing the first child for the second one!
 
I just finished reading this nice thread and I feel my heart growing bigger.

My baby girl is now 10months old and maybe it' s time for the second.

We were thinking about it but I was afraid with the first one being so young.
Reading this thread gave me courage.

I know it' s going to be difficult without my family ard (husband works crazy hours and most weekends) but since it worked for all of you it will be for me too.


Nill congrats for the new arrival.

Re: Preparing the first child for the second one!
 
Lots of excellent advice here. I feel for you and your little one as the arrival of baby 2 will happen more or less at the same time of a big move abroad.
So it will be even more important to make some special time for your little girl. I always think of a very good friend of our who had triplets (girls) when their first little girl was 18 months. How they coped I'll never know - but they've all survived unscathed.

The gap between our 2 is 15 months, and we moved a few weeks before no 2 was born- Thank goodness we had a fabulous neighbour and her teenage daughter who were baby mad and took us under their wings. Any chance you can employ somebody to help with move and first few months, so you have time to settle, and time for your little girl .. and of course, yourself.
