In celebrity baby news, baby makes four! What are some benefits to having two kids versus just one?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having one child might seem easy, but having two means your children will have a friend for life. There are also added social benefits to having a second child. Cupid has some benefits to share that might have you thinking twice about stopping after baby number one:

1. Your children learn how to socialize and share with others: When you have a second child, both will have to learn to get along and share with each other because they don’t have much of a choice. Siblings are in each other’s lives all day, every day for the first few years of their lives. This social interaction will help them when it is time to go to school and start making friends.

2. They will have a life-long friend: Siblings may fight, and they may suffer from sibling rivalry from time to time, but they will also play together and love each other. They will be each other’s first friend, and friends for life.

3. You are an expert now: With baby number one you had so much to learn, and you had to learn it fast. You disinfected everything, washed your hands so often they were like sandpaper, and packed half of the household whenever you left the house. However, with baby #2 you already know what you’re doing because your first child taught you to be an expert, so you know what’s coming with sleepless nights, feeding, and everything else involved with having a baby.
