What are ways to prepare differently for a second child versus a first?

Cupid’s Advice:

No doubt welcoming your first child into the world is the happiest you’ve ever been, so you’re thrilled to be expecting a second. Cupid has some advice about how to make sure you’re ready for baby number two to come:

1. Help your first child cope: Up until now your first child has been receiving all of your attention, so he or she won’t be used to sharing the spotlight. Make sure your first child knows what’s coming so they won’t be in for a huge surprise.

2. Reuse items: Figure out what items you bought for your first child that can be reused by the second. Things such as a crib or a stroller can be passed down whereas pacifiers and a great deal of clothing cannot be. You and your spouse should have all of this sorted out before the baby arrives.

3. Get organized: Things are likely to get a little crazy with two little ones running around. Make sure everything is in check before the baby comes to save yourself some stress.
