Reply to How did you plan for Baby #2?

Don’t stress over it. Best thing is to try to keep the oldest in their routine as usual. That will help to minimize some chaos. If need be baby wear so you’re hands are free and you can be totally hands on with number 1. No expectations is important. You will learn what works best for everyone and fall into a routine accordingly. And money wise things somehow always seem to work themselves out. My oldest two are 18 months apart then I had twins just 3 years shy of my second oldest. I am a SAHM and money is really tight sometimes but we have always managed. You just have to learn to live within your means as they change which can be a learning curve and not always the most pleasant but you make it work. You’ve got this. Also remember, involve #1 as much as possible.
