First time mothers face so many challenges, but the second time around is so much easier. Here are 7 Reasons Why Everything Is So Much Easier With Baby #2.
Why Is Everything So Much Easier With Baby #2?
Being a first time mother is nerve-wrecking! You come from from the hospital and there you are: completely in charge of a brand new life. Your baby’s life depends on you 100%. You don’t sleep, don’t know how to burp or change or soothe your baby.
Wow! I don’t know how I survived being a first time mom!
Now, the second time around is so much easier. You still need lots of time to adapt to a new life with another baby, but nothing compares to having the first one.
7 Reasons Why Everything Is So Much Easier With Baby #2
If you are expecting your second child, just relax and know that the second time around will be easier. You already survived your first born child so this time you are already an expert. You got this!
1. You know how to take care of a newborn
You didn’t kill the first one. If that isn’t proof that you can do this, I don’t know what is. You already know what to expect and feel more confident about taking care of baby#2.
2. You know it all goes by fast
With Baby #1 you spend a lot of time worrying about doing everything right. You wonder if the sleepless nights will pass and life will ever feel normal again. With Baby #2 you know it will, and not only that, you know how fast that first year goes by.
3. You have all the gear
Having Baby #2 is practically like you are SAVING money! Getting more use out of all those (useful and not so useful) bits you invested in for Baby #1. You know what works and you don’t go and get unnecessary stuff you already know you don’t need.
4. You already have mama-friends
And you could not imagine life without them. It’s not always easy to break into the mom-friend world, but by the time your second one arrives, you likely have more than a few friends who can totally relate to leaky boobs and poop explosions.
5. You have adjusted to less sleep
This one is so wonderful. By the time you have survived your first infant, getting though the day on 4-5 hours sleep is a breeze. You are already used to waking up early on the weekends, and have no expectations of sleeping for 10 hours in the near future. Those days are long gone.
6. There is no time to be bored
When I had my first son, I only needed to care for one little person. Now that I have two kids, I am so busy with two different schedules, after school activities, homework, birthday parties, etc. Trust me. There is really no time to be bored now.
7. Nobody messes with you
You are now a mother of two and you have the look of wisdom and hard-earned field experience that go with it. It might just be because you give off the air of confidence you lacked with your first, because after all, nosy do-gooders tend to sense weakness.
There you go. I gave you 7 Reasons Why Everything Is So Much Easier With Baby #2. You can find many more reasons but in the end let me tell you a little secret: it’s all about LOVE.
When you become a mother for the first time, you can’t imagine loving anything as much as you love your first. Isn’t it true? But then you meet your second baby, and you love them just as much. And then you love your first for how much they love their sibling. It’s a beautiful feeling a mother can’t really explain in just words.
But everything is easier the second time around. Oh yes…..much easier!
