Having a second baby is a very different experience from having your first, yet there is little recognition of the wide range of issues that need to be considered when bringing a second child into the family. In this incredibly helpful book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith helps parents feel more positive and prepared for life with two children.

The book begins with the obvious question: when is the right time to add another member to the family? It then goes on to examine the specific issues that can arise with a second pregnancy and birth; the common concerns about siblings, such as how to prepare your firstborn for what's to come; how to cope with the practicalities of life with two young children (aka actually managing to get anything done!); and the feelings parents are likely to experience, too.

The Second Baby Book examines all the questions and issues Sarah herself faced second time around, as well as sharing the experiences of the many parents who have sought her advice. It also highlights what scientific studies reveal about such issues as the spacing of children and the differences between first and second births. Practical, insightful and honest, this book will help you understand the challenges ahead but, more importantly, it will equip you to meet them with knowledge, confidence and a sense of excitement for the future.

Book Description:

The essential guide to choosing the best time to have a second baby, preparing for birth second time around and navigating all the practical and emotional challenges of the early days with two.

From the Back Cover:

Reassuring, evidence-based advice on having a second baby and preparing for - and managing - the early days with two

Are you expecting your second child or wondering when is the right time to add another member to your family? In The Second Baby Book, Sarah Ockwell-Smith looks at the unique - and often underestimated - challenges of having a second child, including:

*What is the best age gap?
*Coping with pregnancy when you have another child to care for
*How to prepare your firstborn for what's to come
*Second births - the worries, hopes and practicalities
*Understanding your own emotions as you adjust to becoming a parent of two
*Managing the practicalities of life with two children
*Dealing with difficult behaviour and sibling rivalry

Sarah presents the current scientific research in an easy to read way, along with her personal experience as a mother to four. She also shares the stories of many of the parents she has worked with as a parenting coach, antenatal teacher and doula. This blend of science and real-life experience makes The Second Baby Book an honest and practical guide to all that having a second baby entails.
