Will I Love My Second Child the Same as First?

Will I Love My Second Child the Same as First?

Everyone knows that the heart of mother is full of love for her child in every walk of life. A mother has the capability of loving and caring her child even in the toughest moment of her life. There is no doubt about it. This love is at its peak when the baby is number one. I mean most of the time women welcome their first child with all the love and care they can possibly offer. Their child becomes their world where there is no place for anyone else.

Situation becomes slightly different when one plans for another child or it happens by chance. Whatever the condition may be, a question starts revolving in the mind and heart of mom. Will I be able to love and care the second baby the same as I do for my first?

I may be wrong about others but this was the case with me. I always wondered what would I do? Will I be partial towards my first child because he was at the centre of my heart and mind all the time since he was born? Will I be a good mom to my second child? These questions were always on the back of my head through out my pregnancy. Although I was secretly falling in love all over again with the  little life growing within me, I was really not ready to admit it.

Then the day came when my newborn daughter was in my lap looking like an angel. I don’t know when those questions and doubts left my heart and mind for ever. I was in love with my second child as soon as I saw her face. I think I was loving her all the time since I conceived but holding her actually in my lap washed all my doubts about loving second baby as same as first.
