Dos and Donts of Bringing Home Your Second Baby

I first met Ang on my Ask the Chicks forum. She always answered everyone’s questions with such humour and insight that I asked her if she wanted to write a guest post here. Thankfully she agreed and wrote this amazing piece on how to prepare for your second (third, fourth, 17th) child.
