Are there/ can there be any plans for another MN book on coping with your 2nd + child? Strikes me there are quite a few who are now on 2nd + pregnancies/ births and all the other books are mainly about the baby rather than coping with a small child + new baby.
Topics could include - coping with jealousy, feedking times, day to day routines, day ofthe birth, getting out and about etc - i'd be interested? Anyone else?
What does MN think?

I think it is a good idea (although unlikely to be printed in time for DS2/DD's birth in September

I think it's a very good idea. When I was pregnant with my second child I found only one book on the subject (imaginatively titled "Your Second Child"). I can't actually remember anything it said, now.

There's a book called something like "three shoes one sock" or something like that, by Libby Purves I think, which is about the transition from one child to two....

No, it was by Rebecca Abrams - have just checked it on Amazon.

Anyway, just 'cause it has been done before doesn't mean there isn't space for more than one or two books on the subject.

Definitely a good idea!

And that three socks a hairbrush and a nervous breakdown or whatever it's called can't corner the market

Thanks for this. There are a few ideas for new books under discussion and this is a good suggestion...certainly one to mull over at next meeting. We'll keep you informed on any developments.
