Things I Would Do Differently With A Second Child

August 28, 2018






As the saying goes there is something to be said for learning from experience, and as I first-time mother I think I'm doing a pretty good job. But there is always room for improvement and parenting is no exception. Here are some of the things I'd do differently with a second child.






1. Baby Led Weaning - When Blake moved onto solids I blended most of his meals and spoon fed him, mostly because it was easier to cook meals in bulk and freeze them. Feeding him myself also avoided mess that I didn't want to deal with. However, I think this what led to Blake to start becoming fussy with food and although he's a lot better now I still think it would have been better if I'd let him feed himself.


2. No Television - All parents know that it can be hard to get things done around the house when there are children around that's when TV can come in handy. But now I find it more of an addiction for my son, one that I'm slowly winning. I used to let him watch TV from a young age and if I could do it over again I would wait until at least aged 3/4 years-old and it would be for a limited time only.


3. No Chocolate! - I didn't actually break this one, family and friends did, and once most kids get a taste of chocolate then that's it. Blake does eat a lot of healthy food, but he also has his fair share of junk food and I'm making a point of limiting the amount of the stuff he has.


That completes my list, thankfully I don't have too many regrets. I did get a lot of stuff right when it comes to raising Blake so far. Perhaps this list will get bigger as time goes on. We will just have to wait and see.
