Learning from your mistakes the second time around? Angelina'sMama Due February 4 (boy); British Columbia 37 posts

I am 23 weeks along with my baby boy and my daughter is 4.5, I'm thinking there are a few things I won't do with my 2nd that I've done with my 1st, like Co-sleeping! She slept in her crip from 3 mths to 2 years but when we got her a toddler bed she slept with us for over a year and it was very hard to get her back in her own room. So not making the same mistake again there and there was also the bottle at bedtime...I regret that the most. I will not be giving my son a bottle at bedtime, it was excruciating trying to break my daughter of needing it and so bad for her teeth! What would/did you do differently the second time around?

I wouldn't co sleep either. It is hard for me to leave her in her room as it is though.

Probably nothing, we cosleep until 2, breastfeed, etc. I think I want to wear this baby more..I need a good carrier.

Eta..we didn't have a problem getting our 2 year old to sleep by himself..our 4 year old either, though he wakes a couple times a night due to sleep issues related to autism.
