    Welcome and Congratulations! When are you due and what type of advice are you looking for? Without specific questions my best advice is to be well educated about your birthing choices and make informed decisions.

    My name is Aubry. I'm also pregnant with our second little one due next May. I'm planning my first home birth but second natural (unmedicated) birth. Our DS is 21 months old and still breastfed. I hope to continue and tandem nurse but I wouldn't be devastated if he weaned. We also cloth diaper and co-sleep.

    My dh and I only have one baby right now, but my sister in law is pregnant with ds #2 and from watching her I would say practice! Lol she borrows my baby all the time to practice taking care of a baby and entertaining her toddler so that going from one to two kids won't be as much of a shock when the new baby arrives.

    I have been planning on side caring our crib or using our arm's reach co-sleeper for the baby and letting DS continue to sleep in between DH and I. I wouldn't trust DS not to roll on the baby if they were both in bed with us.

    Congrats. My best advice is to read ina Mays guide to childbirth. It put it in such beautiful and easy to understand terms that I actually want to try for a natural birth again. And if you plan to tandem nurse to start reading up on that now!

    Congrats! I second any Ina May Gaskin books! I have two LOs 20 months apart and tandem nurse them both. How old is your first?

    DD turns three on the 15th of this month.  She self weaned at 17 months and I let her lead the way.
