The Practicalities of Family Expansion in 2020

If there is one thing that life teaches us every day, it’s that there is no good time for anything to happen. The more that you wait around for a right time, the quicker you’ll watch things pass you by and the timing will never be right. This goes for upgrading your car, buying a house and even having another baby. There is no right time in life for a baby, because a baby is going to turn the world upside down even when you don’t want it to. If one baby turns things on their head, imagine what a second addition to the family would do? Deciding to have one baby is unlocking a life achievement that many wish to complete at least once in their lives. Raising a child from new baby to adulthood is a massive privilege and a challenging thing to do. You and your partner will spend weeks, if not months, imagining that child and what they will grow up to be. The thing is, it’s always easy to have one child. One baby crying and two pairs of hands to deal with it is, well, easy. One of the biggest jokes in life is that you don’t quite realise how easy it is to have one baby, until you introduce another one to the mix.

Find out my experience with them and why I think you should rent, too!Recently, we went on our very first family vacation.  The planning was in the works for a really long time.  That's me – the planner.  As I thought about what we would need for our two babies, I started to wonder (and slightly freak out) about car seats!

Yep, entire companies dedicated to renting baby gear!!
