  1. In my experience second babies (and subsequent) fit in with life better – they learn to wait for feeds and things more. Your life does not change as much and they are the easy ones compared with the eldest. Of course this is not always true but many times it is. You eldest will always be the most difficult as you go through everything with them first! (I even found this when I had a very sick child – I spent a lot of emotional stress on the eldest – not the sick one!). Nothing prepares you for the first child and the second is easier. Hang on in there 🙂

    1. I think you’re probably right on that one. I can imagine that while it will be harder to handle TWO children, my attention will still be mostly on Dex, as he’ll be doing everything completely new, while the baby will be sort of “old territory.” 😉

  4. I have nothing useful to add regarding siblings as I didn’t get a sibling until I was almost 9 and my daughter is an only child, but I am very jealous of your neat and pretty bump! I looked like a whale by the 24 week point and it only got worse from there so you’re doing brilliantly! Congrats for reaching the big milestone too.

    1. Goodness me! I am one of FIVE kids (number 4!) and my fiance is one of SIX (number 2!). So we both have older and younger siblings, but I was definitely too young to really remember what it was like before my younger brother was born.

      And thanks for the compliment on my bump! I am so self conscious about it, as I have so much fat that it doesn’t look very round most of the time and deflates when I sit down. Lol.

  7. The only thing i can say is be prepared.Have nappy changing stuff down stairs and upstairs, cook meals ahead and have them in the freezer and get a slow cooker (crock pot).Don’t feel guilty if baby seems left out and vice versa with Dexter they will both find their own feet.Ask for help, great grandparent s to take out your son but never make him feel it’s because you want him out of the way.Extra cuddles and getting him to help with the baby and make him feel he has some sort of responsibility to him.Stickers never fail nor do lots of hugs and praise.Good luck!
