Having the first baby is the most precious moment of a woman’s life but having the second one has a lot of contemplations attached to it. Often women are seen facing a sort of anxiety while planning for the second baby. Here we bring in to your knowledge 9 things that no one ever told you about having a second baby. Have a look:
Having a second baby will be much less stressful as compared to the first . Moreover, due to your experience with your first baby you will be able to manage your time easily and give both the babies the required attention you want.
Few parents have this misconception that they will always love their first baby more than their second one, but that is not at all true. You will love your second baby as much as your first baby. Both of your babies are your own creation and no matter what, your love for them will always remain equal and non partial.
The house environment may tend to differ when a new child is introduced to it. The two babies will differ in nature and thus you will experience a great deal of dissimilarity in the the needs and requirements of the two. While one baby might be a fussy sleeper, the second one can prove to be better at sleep.
With the birth of the second child you will feel more committed and bonded to your spouse and children. In fact, your kids are the one who make your marital relationship go stronger.
Sometimes your older child might feel insecure about his baby brother or sister. The solution to this problem is to keep your older child engaged in some kind of work by giving him daily chores and making him feel important and needed. Also, you can involve him in some of the activities you do for the second baby as this will give him a sense of being the elder and responsible one. However, some first born accept the new member happily and even stand protective about them.
Managing a household with a baby is no easy task. But now that you have experienced every phase of it with your first born, managing the same with the second child won't be that difficult and time consuming.
Often parents fear that bringing a second baby into their lives might lead to ignorance towards the first. And it can even damage his life because of the divided parental attention. But this isn't true. On the contrary, this comes as a good change as your first child learns the art of sharing and loving despite the differences.
You have seen it all, from the first smiles, to the first walk; but that doesn't mean your second child's development and growth won't excite you. It certainly will and you would be anticipating all his moves.
As now you have been through infancy period, raising the second child would come relatively easy. You will be aware about most of the child related things and thus won't necessarily need to seek for expert advice every now and then.
