The Ultimate Guide To: Preparing For A Second Baby
The second is always a little different than the first. The good thing is this time you will be even more prepared, because you already know the basics. Here are some expert tips second time moms should do this time around...

If you have an older child, waiting until mommy's belly is big enough to notice, or when the child may be hearing about it, may be the best time to treat them and talk to them with some ice cream or something they like.
