If you’re like me, chances are you might be envisioning everything to go smoother the second time around. In some cases, this is true. You know how to diaper and burp and, if you’re lucky, rock a baby to sleep. You’ve also become a master at doing things with one hand.

But you might be shocked to find out that the sleepless nights, early mornings and intense demands of having a baby is just as hard the second time. The good news is, this time you’re ready for it.
