How do you prepare for a second child versus a first?

Cupid’s Advice:

You’ve found out that you’re expecting a second baby! How will this baby be different? How do you get ready to have a second child? Cupid is here to help:

1. Get out the hand-me-downs: Good news! You don’t have to spent a fortune on your baby this time around (well, not as big a fortune). Sort through the clothes and toys that your first child has outgrown and set them aside for your second baby.

2. Don’t expect him/her to be like the first: Every child is different. Don’t assume that your new baby will have the same personality or temperament as his or her older sibling. Try to limit your expectations and keep an open mind.

3. Learn from your mistakes: New parents always get things wrong. Remember back to the little mistakes you made the first time around (diaper fiascos, obsessive cleanliness etc.) and make sure to avoid them with this child.
