Welcome to the How To Prepare For a Second Baby | Blog Series. I’m currently pregnant with my second child, so there’s been a lot of preparation going on at moment. Especially as I only have 5 weeks left… Eeek!
As I’m now doing this for the second time, I decided to write a blog series to discuss many different aspects of preparing for baby no2.
If you’re also expecting baby no.2 and wondering what baby items you can or can’t reuse, what you should absolutely do before your 2nd baby arrives, how to prepare your first child for a sibling, and what must-haves you need in your hospital bag, then stick around. This series gives you all that and more.

The first post in the series is available from 7 am tomorrow. The remaining posts will be published from each day following with the final post being available on Saturday.
