In latest celebrity news, Carrie Underwood is expecting celebrity baby number two. According to UsMagazine.com, celebrity couple Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are excited to welcome their child, but also have plans to potentially adopt in the future. It looks like this family just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
In celebrity baby news, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fischer are expecting their second child. What are some ways to prepare differently for a second child versus for your first?
As exciting as it can be having a second child, it is a little more calming. There are things you did with your first child that you probably won’t do with your second. Cupid has some ways to prepare differently for your second child versus your first:
1. The registry: Whether you planned on having a second baby or not, carefully choose the items on your registry. If you have anything left over from your first child, it doesn’t hurt to use it again. When making up the registry, pick the items you know you will use and/or need. Adding different items you didn’t really use with your first baby will probably go unused with your second. This will save you money in the long run and you will have everything that you will need. You can never have too many diapers and wipes.

2. Make room: Time to make room for your new bundle of joy. It doesn’t hurt to get a head start on arranging the sleeping arrangements. Planning ahead makes things so much easier rather than just waiting for the baby to come. Also with that, you can pretty much know what to expect in terms of where things will go. As exciting as it is to have a new baby, save some money on building a new room. Depending on the arrangements made, it may just be easier to keep the kids together.

3. Get some sleep: After your first child, you pick up on when you can get some rest. While with your first child, you probably ran every time you heard a coo or a cry, this time is different. Knowing what you know now will prepare you to be able to finally get some rest. Granted you will have two kids, but your other child will already have a set routine which helps.
