Today’s vlog is about welcoming a new addition to the family! When they think about having a second child, many moms already experience “mom guilt”! Not good! I did another video on this subject where I gave British pop star Lily Allen some advice on having another baby close in age. Keep watching here for more information and how to avoid feeling guilty with a second child!
When you’re pregnant with your second child, don’t think about a new baby as taking something AWAY from your child, nor as something bad you are doing to your child – which is what I fell into. Think of it as giving your child a new friend they will have for the rest of their lives! And, if nothing else, you can think of it as having several people you will be able to count on one day when you’re older and need a caretaker. In this video, I offer tips on preparing your child for a new baby based on my own experience.
