Mine are just 14 months apart. But already I am realizing a ton of things I should have done from the beginning with the first. For instance, eating and drinking at the tables only. Of course they are going to make messes but cleaning carpets could have been avoided. As well as putting them to sleep without rocking or soothing, letting them learn to fall asleep. Those are the 2 biggest things I have learned. The battle of eating only at the table just began...sure it will be a long process for the 22 month old. But really, what else do we have to do all day but repetition until he gets it. What have you learned?

I started co-sleeping from the get go and didn't even bother with a crib or nursery. I knew I was going to breastfeed at least 3 years instead of a year. I didn't worry about my baby sleeping through the night, I knew that might not happen until 3 years. The only baby stuff I wanted to have was a sling and a car seat. I knew the World Health Ass recommended waiting 3 years before ttc and I got a diaphram right away so I wouldn't have to worry about unexpected pregnancy. My first two were 3.5 years apart.
