Children-pogodki: how to prepare for the birth of a second child


More and more modern moms decide to give birthThe second child, without leaving the leave to care for the first child. Someone turns out to get pregnant by accident, but someone specifically wants children with a small age difference. Maternity capital also stimulates many to take such a step. Although the young mother still does not have time to forget all the nuances associated with the appearance of a small man in the family, she needs to prepare and take into account some new moments

Where is the newborn to sleep?

This question is the very first one. The sleeping place of the second child must necessarily be protected from the elder. After all, he can, by carelessness or out of jealousy, offend crumbs. The stability of the crib is an important characteristic of the crib in such a situation. If in its design there are wheels, then the function of fixing them is mandatory. Otherwise, the first child will simply roll the bed across the room.

It is better to put a cot or a cradle in a roomIn advance, so that the older child could play with it, got used to it. Then, with the birth of a brother or sister, it is less likely that his crib will provoke a violent interest in the first child.

Where to leave the awake baby?

Mom of two young children are constantly neededfree hands. When the baby is alone, there is an opportunity to hold it for a long time. But with two children it is already difficult, attention is required for both. For example, the elder must be fed, and the younger one does not sleep and is capricious, so it must be taken to the kitchen.

Mom must provide for places where sheWill leave the baby. It is convenient to use a chaise longue. In it, the baby is fastened, can not fall out, and from his own movements he will rock himself. A car with a flat bottom is also suitable for such purposes.

In extreme cases, the first time you can use the carry. But in her, the baby is free to turn around and can drop it from the chair. So this is only a temporary measure.


Also not superfluous furniture in a nursery - an arena. From the moment the baby starts to roll over and crawl in it it is very convenient to leave it. The walls of the arena will not allow the crumb to go to a dangerous place, and also protect from the older child. After all, if the baby is put just on the floor, his brother or sister can step on it.

Ergo-backpack or sling

When my mother and I go awayGo, free hands are very necessary for her. Sooner or later you'll have to go to a clinic or a shop with both children. In this case it is worth to get a sling or ergo-backpack. So the mother can safely guide the elder's hand or dress him when the younger one is quietly sleeping or looking around in a safe place - on her body.


As soon as a woman learns about pregnancy secondChild, it is better for her to learn the first child from the stroller. The sooner he gets used to walking with his own feet, the better. If he until the birth of the second baby will ride in a stroller, it will then become a big problem. Mom simply can not walk with both children.

These are the most important moments that will have to be taken into account when a second child in the family appears with a small difference from the first. Other problems can already be solved as the two children grow up.
