Mother of one, entrepreneur and reality TV star Bethenny Frankel wants to add even more to her plate: baby number two.  The former Real Housewives star said she’s so busy that she and her husband actually have to schedule time to make a baby.  “We want to have another child, but we’re going to have to start trying,” Frankel told RadarOnline.  “We talk about having two children, definitely.  But I’m 40, like, we need to get on the bandwagon.”

How do you prepare to have a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Nothing can fully prepare you for parenthood until the baby actually comes, but Cupid has some tips on how to make the transition easier:

1. Read books: There are lots of great resources out there, like What To Expect When You’re Expecting.  Do some research before your bundle of joy arrives.

2. Ask for advice: Talk to friends and family who have children to see what their biggest surprises were when their first child was born.

3. Babysit: If you have any young nieces, nephews or cousins that you can spend time with, becoming comfortable with them will help make you more used to having a little one around.
