How to Have Your Second Child First Book Review & Giveaway





As any parent of more than one child will tell you, things are much easier the second time around. In this warm and reassuring book, scores of real-life second-time parents offer first-timers their stories and lessons learned. One hundred accessible entries guide new parents through pregnancy and the first year of life, covering everything from birth plans and breast-feeding to finding a parental comfort zone. With a dose of patience and a sprinkling of humor, How to Have Your Second Child First helps first-timers navigate parenthood with the savvy and calm of moms and dads who have been there before twice.

After reading this book I wish I would have had it when I had my first child! This book is the perfect guide for any first time parent. It gave me so many laughs because it is so true!! I used to have the mentality of the first time parent and now I agree with the experienced parents tips they have in this book.

Kerry Colburn and Rob Sorensen are second-time parents who have learned a lot from their two energetic young daughters, Piper and Molly. A former publishing executive, Kerry is a freelance writer, editor, and consultant. Rob is an author and software developer. They are the authors of Mommy Lotto; Daddy Lotto; So, You Want to Be Canadian; and The U.S. of Eh? (all from Chronicle Books). They currently work, parent, and drink plenty of coffee in Seattle.
