1st and 2nd
I’m absolutely amazed at the differences between my first and second child. Not just their differences, but the difference in how I do things.
1st – I changed her diaper like every 2 hours, on the changing table.
2nd – I change it when wet, never during the night and anywhere in the house, never the changing table.
1st – I formula fed.
2nd – I’m still breastfeeding.
1st – I dressed her everyday, even if we were just hanging out at home.
2nd – she’s in her jammies, unless we leave the house.
1st – She slept through the night at 8 weeks.
2nd – 3 months old, still eating every 3 hours.
1st – Fully vaccinated on time.
2nd – We are delaying her vaccs
1st – Had never heard of “baby-wearing”
2nd – I own a ring sling, mei tai, and pouch sling
1st – Obsessively gave her a bath, every night.
2nd – The first few weeks, she got a bath once a week, now it’s every other day.
1st – Took me a long, long time to bond.
2nd – Bonded instantly.
There are hundreds more. I’m just amazed at how different it is.
