more then the first time round. Don't get me wrong i loved having my first but now im a mum again to an 8mth old i just feel that im enjoying it so much more. Im not sure if its because im older, wiser or just more experienced all probably all three.

Oh yes, its sooooo much better second time around, and then better still third time! (i'm not doing a fourth so i can't help you there wink)

I agree its a combination of age, experience and knowledge. The big difference for me was allowing myself to trust myself go with my instincts and do what i think is right, rather than what everyone else is saying is right!

Relaxing and going with the flow is the key to success IM very HO grin

hmm...loved it more 2nd time round, but hated it 3. time round...but 3rd dc was a horrendous Baby ( he is now a lovely , content and delightful little, we got over that....but I do still find it difficult having 3....)

2nd time round far far better than first- with dd1 I felt she just looked at me and we both knew that I didn't have a clue, cue hysteria from both of us! Far more relaxed with dd2. Now have no 3 (ds) and enjoying it HUGELY- possibly cause he is to be the last, but also just feel so much calmer this time round
