Hello! I'm 33 weeks' pregnant with baby number two. My DS will be 22 months old when baby number two is born. I'm looking for a good book on advice for looking after a newborn and a toddler. Any suggestions?

I found The Second Baby Survival Guide by Naia Edwards was a really useful read. My DD was 2.5 when DS was born and it was really useful. It's very easy to read, nice and lighthearted but with lots of practical advice.

Oh, and congratulations - and good luck! wink

Three shoes, one sock and no hairbrush is a (brutally) honest description of life with two. And it does have some good advice. But I would save it to read when you are about 6-12 months in.

I like the Three Shoes book mentioned above. A lot of people find it depressing so don't read it while you are pregnant perhaps. However, if you do struggle with two (and not everyone does) it's invaluable as it makes you feel that someone out there really does know how you feel and how it is.

There's a good thread on here that's invaluable.
