Mother's Day Poll: How is nesting for your second child different from your first?

2-minute read

The Mother's Day Event: How preparing for the second child is different than the first. Poppy Barley offers made to made custom shoes in sizes 5-12, mens and womens, in standard, narrow and wide fits. Last week, in celebration of our Mother's Day Event you met Lindsey + Weston. This week, meet Christine (31), little Alice (2), and Baby #2 ("pictured" at 33 weeks). Christine is a project manager and designer for a motion graphic design studio, and she's also the blogger behind Just Bella - a source for design and lifestyle inspo that we adore (you should probably follow her on Instagram right now!). We were so excited to see Christine's Poppy Barley boots order come in a few weeks ago, and thought she and her growing family might be the perfect fit for our Mother's Day shoot at Stephanie Passuto's kids-only studio. Scroll down to see more photos (those PB flats look good on you, Alice!), find out how Christine answered our Mother's Day Poll, and share YOUR answer to this week's question in the comments section!

How is nesting for your second child different from your first?

"It has been completely different this time around! Life is completely different this time around. With my first, I read all the books, bought 'all the things' and put all my time and energy into creating the perfect little nursery space for our babe. I had no idea what I was really getting myself into so I wanted to make sure I had all my bases covered. I also had the luxury of napping, shopping alone, and putting my feet up when I needed to (oh man, that was nice).

To say things are a bit different with my second pregnancy is a bit of an understatement. Life moves at lightning speed chasing after a toddler all day - there's just no time to nap or relax! I already have most of the things we need which is good because all I've bought for this baby so far is a cute pair of shoes (priorities, right)!

I think when it's your first child you are preparing yourself for such a drastic life change that the need to feel prepared is so strong. I'm much more easy going about prepping for this babe and am focusing on soaking up as much time with Alice as I can. Life is about to be even more crazy and tiring, but I'm already tired so bring it on!" - Christine, 31

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
