What is the best way to announce a 2nd baby?

I don't live near any of my family, so we will have to do some online, some phone calls...but I want it to be special like it was telling them about the 1st baby. We were all together then, but it's not possible now.

  • When we found out we were pregnant with our first, we just came out and told my family. We didn't do anything fancy.

    But with our second, we are planning on buying our daughter a "Big Sister" shirt and letting her wear the shirt when we go visit my parents. I'm not pregnant yet, but we will be TTC soon and I've already thought about how I'm going to let them know when we do get pregnant. Maybe you guys could take a family picture together and let your first child wear a "big brother or big sister" shirt in it and send it to family via e-mail, text message or something!

  • Make a website that announces the pregnancy and send them all a link?

  • I would just call and tell them. It's a baby, it's very special. You don't need any hoopla to enhance it.

  • wear a shirt that says"bun in the oven" for the online ones lol. When I found out I was pregnant with a boy I wore a t-shirt for the family announcement that said"feeling blue"

  • Have your 1st child wear a shirt that says "I am going to be a big brother/sister" and take a picture then send to all your relatives, or have you try call and tell everyone that they will be a big brother/sister
