Does anyone have recommendations on books for adults to read about having a second child? It seems like there are several out there, but I can't tell which (if any) are worth reading.
I'm interested in any responses you get, but I also wanted to share a not-exactly-what-you're-asking-for recommendation. I am reading the book Minimalist Parenting by Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest. Each author has two kids. They talk a lot about time management, family priorities and values, and simplifying your life so that you DO feel like you have enough time. I think it would be a good complement to any books specifically about having a second child.
This isn't really about having a second child, but something I wish I read just a bit earlier than I did - "Siblings Without Rivalry". I read it when the kids were both over 3 years old and it would have been nice to have the perspective and outlook it brings even earlier. I think when a new baby comes the infant can be so angelic compared to the older sibling, that it can actually can feel like the baby is "the favorite" for a while - maybe that's so we can bond with the new one as strongly as the older child. But don't worry - you will love both, differently and equally!
