Re: talk to me about going from 1 kid to 2
Get a superyard. It saved my sanity when we went from 2-3 kiddos. I wish I had bought it sooner. It allows baby to have tummy time without being mowed over by older siblings, and gives you a safe place to put baby when you have to pee that the bigger child can't touch. Even at 21 months old, we still use it daily.
A good baby carrier is a must. My favorite for the newborn stage is the Beco Gemini, though many on here like Moby or Maya wraps.
Older kiddo will learn to wait some. Baby will probably have to cry/wait a little more than older kiddo did. But while it seems like forever when you are going through the newborn stage, it really does go quickly and you will find your new routine/normal.
Good luck mama! 10 years from now, you will look back and laugh that you were freaking out now.
