Second Child: Books!


I've mentioned before that I want to be intentional with my second pregnancy as I was with Henry, despite the fact that life with a toddler is incredibly more difficult than life with just my partner.

As part of that intentionality, I'd like to read some books. Here's what I was able to find:
  1. Twice Blessed: Everything You Need to Know about Having a Second Child--Preparing Yourself, Your Marriage, and Your First-born for a New Family of Four
  2. The Second Baby Survival Guide: How to Stay Calm and Enjoy Life with a New Baby and a Toddler
  3. Beyond One: Growing a Family and Getting a Life
  4. The Contented Baby with Toddler Book
  5. From One Child to Two: What to Expect, How to Cope, and How to Enjoy Your Growing Family
  6. And Baby Makes Four: Welcoming a Second Child into the Family
  7. Welcoming Your Second Baby
  8. Your Second Pregnancy: What to Expect This Time
I'll definitely see which of these books I can find at the library!

I look forward to following along with your pregnancy and learning from you! I have two children, but definitely want to add a third before too long.

Congratulations and best wishes!

I was really inspired by reading the stories of births from Ina May Gaskin's books. I didn't know many women who had unmedicated births, so it was great to hear them tell of how wonderful and normal it could be. Also, we did hypnobabies which was so educational and prepared both of us so well.

if its contented little baby by gina ford....i strongly discourage it...it felt like a punishmnt more than anythn else...she expects your baby to be robotic, feed sleep and smile at same time evryday for 1 whole yr...and advicates the cryin out method
