Overview The author of Feed Me I'm Yours and Games Babies Play offers a useful guide to becoming a parent for the second time, presenting hundreds of tips for preparing for a second child. Original.
For parents, the thought of having a second child can be joyous, traumatic, or more likely both. It can be equally difficult for a displaced first child. With her trademark humor and practical advice, best-selling parenting author Vicki Lansky guides parents through the major transition from one child to two. Welcoming Your Second Baby contains hundreds of practical tips and advice for this challenging time. Topics include how to explain the coming of the new baby; listings of age-appropriate books and videos on reproduction and sibling situations; ideas for showing how love can be shared; helping a child adjust to mom's hospital stay — and return; information for today's working parent; and tips for helping an older sibling adjust, help at feeding times, and learn gentleness. Included are updated listings of services, resources, and support groups; lots of parent-tested "it worked for me" testimonials; and a complete, easy-to-use index.

Great Advice Aug 9, 2004
I found this book to be very helpful. It's an easy to read guide with a lot of useful advice. I've been able to use many of Vicki Lansky's ideas to help my toddler not feel left out. I am pleased that my oldest feels proud to be an older brother.
This book is HORRIBLE!! Apr 20, 2004
This book is absolutely awful. I read it to be informed and wound up being offended. If you feel this way about having another baby, you shouldn't! This book reads like first children are the greatest joy, and all the ones who come after that are just intrusions on your perfect little family. Ugh! There are many ways to prepare your home and eldest child for a new sibling, and none of them should involve this miserable and cruel piece of garbage. As for sibling rivalry- as one of four children, and now a mother of five- I can tell you that it only happens if you allow it to happen. Foster love between your children, and they will respond by becoming great friends.
I can't believe there are really women who feel this way about their second babies. God help them. I threw this rotten book in the trash. Don't waste your money on it- go buy something to celebrate the new life growing inside you and the new member of your family!!!
Disappointed Apr 11, 2000
I had hoped this book would provide more insight and ideas. I didn't feel it really addressed preparing children based on their ages and understanding, and I wanted to know what a two-year-old will be feeling and thinking about a new baby, and I was hoping for more ideas. There are a few funny anecdotes, but overall, I didn't find anything useful.
It's a big advertisement Jan 17, 2000
I was disappointed in how small this book was, and that on every other page it was selling other books or even T-shirts! I think it could have been a lot better. The one chapter in The Girlfriend's Guide to the Toddler Years that deals with bringing another baby into the house was more insightful than this entire book.
