Hey Lovelies, 

This is a very different post to what I would normally do and I thought long and hard about how I could work with this on the blog, but after a little while I thought you know what why not discuss it as it is. 

Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure have been working with 500 pregnant mums about what they are most worried about and what they are looking forward to the second time around and the results were so interesting I wanted to share them with you. 

64% of women are worried about being pregnant again and 63% of them want to have their partner and friends with them most of the time, as 36% worry that they won’t remember what to do the second time around. And 60% of the 500 worried about the loss of me time, as 53% were concerned over fitting in a new baby’s routine and juggling their other child’s needs and their household tasks. 

However to get rid of the worries charity Family Lives have provided some tips, as Suzie Hayman from Family Lives advises “It’s easy to assume that second time around means you've got it covered. In fact, parents can feel just as anxious with a second pregnancy. They can worry whether they’ll remember how to cope with even the basics, and how they’ll balance the demands of a new arrival with the needs of the first child and their partner. It’s natural and normal to feel like this – which is why I’ve worked with Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure to create a set of top tips to help and support new parents.”

They suggest that families parent together and have a strong bond that will make the child feel secure, without feeling bad about spending time together by asking friends and family to look after the child for the night or by just relaxing together for a few minutes a day. 

As well they advise spending some quality time with just the oldest child to make sure they don’t feel left out by the new addition lovelies, which could be done by introducing to them a routine that highlights all the special things they will do that day with both parents. 

And it may not be just them who needs a routine, as they suggest that it may be best to have a routine yourself as a parent to make sure that all the tasks have been met and quality carefree moments can be spent. 

Speaking about these tips and ideas, Clare Logan, Brand Manager for Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure, said: "We commissioned research to find out more about how expectant mums feel the second time round. There is a misconception that as they have been through pregnancy before they do not have any worries the next time. Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure know that this is a special and wonderful time for mums and are working with Family Lives help alleviate any niggling concerns, such as managing another little one in the house, so mums can focus on the joy that a second baby in the family brings.” 

Persil Non-Bio and Comfort Pure are a great team lovelies and this information really interested me, as I haven’t ever thought about stuff like this and I think that when you get some quality you should spend it watching films aha!
