My husband and I are thinking about child #2. We have a 19 month old "big boy" now, and he's starting to potty train. Pretty successfully with pee. He has reasonably dry diapers and pees a lot when he does go. He has good intake, so I think that we are potty training! No success with poo, but, it's a good sign to me that I MIGHT be able to have another baby. *Quick, before a tantrum changes my mind!* Haha!
But, when I think about having another baby, bonding, breastfeeding, etc. I feel like I will be greiving for my first son? He's alive and well but that is the only word that seems to fit what I think I will feel. I think I might be sad to lose that special bond with my first kiddo--he and I will never be just us 2 again. Has anyone had that feeling? I'm really afraid that I will not bond near as well with a second child. Especially if we have another boy? I don't know!
I'd love to hear if any of you that have just had a 2nd child, or have had these concerns or feelings with a subsequent 3rd, 4th, etc. Is this common? Weird?
