Hi friends,
I am pregnant with my second baby. Due date is in March 2015.
Good to find this thread. I have lot of questions..

My first baby is 18 months old. When should I stop picking him up?

As of now, my son is very dependent on me. He sleeps near me and mostly he kicks me on my stomach. Is that dangerous in any way?

Also, with my son, I was not able to breastfeed as I didnt produce enough milk. Please let me know what I have to take care so that I will be in a better position to breastfeed when I have my second child.

Thanks in advance.

Hi arunuma,

Have a happy and safe pregnancy journey. :)

It was little difficult to make the little one to understand, but if you practice from the starting then sure your son can understand you and your little one easily from now.

Though light kicks frm your son is not that much dangerous but you should be careful too. Try placing a pillow between you too. Tell him that you are having a little one with you slightly. He will understand in a week or two.

Show him youtube videos of child in womb and the baby's developement. Interrelate with your baby too.

Make him practice to sleep with his dad, so that it will be easy for you in the last stage of pregnancy and also after child birth. If you done this now itself your son don't get jealous with your baby after birth.

Regarding breastfeeding please get advice from Dr. I hope she will advise to stop breastfeeding because you won't get nutrition if you breastfeed him. It will be better to get advise from your doctor.

All the best!

Hi lavanya,

Congrats on your second pregnancy. This is very ideal gap between the two child. Since your kid is 2.7 years old, he can understand well your situation, the best time to tell to your kid about your pregnancy is around 5-7 month. It's important to look after yourself too, bcoz you will find very less time, most of the time will be spend with the 1st one.


Most of the ladies pregnant with the second baby get fear because of losing intimacy with the 1st child and thoughts of siblings rivalry. You can stay close to your 1st son with little efforts and also think that having sibling for your child is a blessing. Tell him that a new baby (thambi paapa) growing inside. Dont tell him any particular gender, later it will be difficult to change his mind. Let him gently touch your tummy and talk to the baby.

One of the most important thing is make him to get close with his daddy and other members in family who will help you at the time of delivery. And also tell your care takers (husband, family and friends) not to touch his ego, by saying,
No one will take care of you or your baby is very fair than you like that. This may develop some inferiority complex in him and vengence in his mind. Tell them to give 1st priority to him and then to your new born. And also during the intial days when you are holding your baby or feeding or talking with baby make your care takers to take him away by giving him some works (divert him without his knowledge)

Dont tell him blankly that you can play wit him or her, they may thought that the new born will come and play with him straightly as soon as he / she born. Show him some old photos of him how the new baby will be and it will take some time to get bigger and play with him.
