There is so much information out there for new parents. It can be incredibly overwhelming. When I was preparing for our first child, I read so many books, blogs, and articles about babies. By the time he was born, I considered myself an “expert” and knew exactly how I wanted to raise him. I had all these preconceived notions about what was best and what kind of mother I would be. I set the expectations high and became irritated with myself and others when my expectations weren’t meant. It made me incredibly uptight.

There is something about finding out you’re pregnant for the second time that brings with it a whole new batch of worries. You’re not a complete novice at this parenting thing, because you already have one kid, but the idea of balancing being a mom to two…well, that just seems like a whole new ball game filled with extra challenges. Believe me…I’ve been there. I currently have a two-and-a-half year old and an almost 3-month-old, so I know these fears well, and I thought it might be helpful to write an open letter to all of you mamas out there who are waiting on that second baby to arrive.

Soon enough, all of the days of easily putting him on his activity mat and running into the kitchen to quickly grab something are no more. Baby life is about to get a little bit more interesting.
