We all know that couples have their second baby, things change, starting from the approach to handling.
Check the following comics out to see the difference having the first vs second child!
While every mother carefully plans her diet during her first pregnancy, by the second, all eating restrictions go out the window.
2. Child’s Progress
With each kid, mothers start to realize that not every new word is a sign her child is the next Nobel Prize winner.
By the second child, mothers become way less paranoid about mystery illnesses and letting germs near their kid.
4. The first day of school
While most mothers can’t bear spending time away from their kid, by the time the second child comes around, moms begin to cherish their ‘me-time’.
5. My Status
Most spouses realize that a pregnant lady doesn’t need 24/7 monitoring to function by the time the second pregnancy comes around.
6. Baby Pictures
By the second kid, the craving to record every little detail of their growing up recedes in most moms, and a smartphone usually suffices.
While the first child is usually pampered to death, the second child has to make do with the spoils of their elder sibling.
Moms spend a ton of money on fancy toys for their first child, but by the time their second child is born, they realize kids just want toys, regardless of how inexpensive they are.
While the first child is kept away from the telly in favor of more hands-on learning, by the second kid, moms realize the TV is a godsend for having some peace and quiet.
Not being able to breastfeed might be a sensitive issue to mothers, but by the second child, moms realize all that matters is that your child is fed, regardless of the source of nutrition.
11. Early Learning Activities
The compulsion to teach your kid every little skill and push them into every extra-curricular you can think of usually turns to teaching them the bare minimum required to be equal with their peers by the second child.
While most moms want their child’s nutrition to be the best, by the time kid number two appears, mothers realize that anything edible and somewhat healthy will do.
While the first pregnancy entails a lot of reading and researching on childcare, by the time the second pregnancy comes, mothers usually have their own experiences with their first born to rely on, and look for offbeat methods of learning new tips.
Most mothers would call the ambulance if they hear their firstborn sneeze, but by the second kid, moms are way less paranoid about illnesses and know when it’s something serious, or when it’s just a little cold.
15. My Friends
By the second pregnancy, the awe of family and friends over it usually subsides to nonchalance.
16. My Wallet
While this mom wanted her firstborn to be with her at all times, by the second child, she was too engrossed in motherly duties to be bothered with silly things like photographs in her wallet.
