There aren't many books on the topic of merging your family from one child to two. Thus far, I've located six titles, though one is unavailable in my library network. This title is the first to come through since it is the only one my local library owns.

This book was a good place to start for information about having your second child. It covers most every aspect of the transition, but doesn't go into much depth on all topics. For example, there was a lot of about choosing if it is the right ti

Recommends it for: 8 months preggers with your second baby?
Holy crap I have a lot of preparation ahead of me! And only a month left... Between getting Maya ready for a new baby, and getting myself ready for renewed sleep deprivation and the discombobulation that accompanies those first few weeks, I'm exhaused just thinking about it.

This book does a great job covering the basics about how this pregnancy and the first few months are likely to be different from the first one. It also does a good job of covering the range of reactions my two year old may ha

I read this over a few months. It had some good info on adding a second child. Some of it was a little depressing, but I suppose just reality. Glad I read it. I feel a bit better armed for this second child.

This book helped me start thinking about the changes a second child will make in our family. It is very realistic in its approach which I liked. But there wasn't too much really "insightful" information given. most of it is just common sense.

I loved how it assumed that the mother was working. She didn't present it as a book for working moms; this normalized the working mom experience. Full of really good advice on how to prepare your child to be a sibling as well.

Short with helpful tips re: adding a second child into the family. I thought it generally seemed practical and worth the couple afternoons it took to look through it.

Not the wealth of information I was hoping for.

Very vague information about HOW to welcome second child into the family. Can find the same exact info online via Google search, and resources are extremely outdated.

The theory is right but it's a little dry.

Helpful advice on transitioning from Baby #1 to Baby #2. Not *quite* completely up-to-date, but enough practical advice to overlook mentions of video tapes instead of DVDs.
