Re: Second Baby Suggestions?

I'm expecting my second baby (a boy!) due 5/30, and wondering if anyone has any suggestions of things that are especially important with baby number 2. Baby number 1 will be turning 2 the week baby is due. Here are a few of my thought that I'd love to have input (other than that from my Mom and mother in law....!)

1) My daughter is still in a crib and sleeps beautifully, with no efforts to climb out... Am I crazy to leave her in her crib and fuss with moving her to a big bed once baby transitions to the crib from the bassinet/co-sleeper? Babies will be sharing a room (probably) for some amount of time at least once new baby moves out of mom and dad's room...

2) Is it asking for trouble to try and start potty training my 20 month old now? She tells us when she goes poo, but that's about all. She is very verbal, and I think she *could* do it, I just don't know that it's worth it to try really hard now to have setbacks on down the road...

3) Any gear suggestions that were lifesavers for baby number 2 (or subsequent ones)? I have already picked up a double stroller (Baby Jogger City Mini from Craigslist), and have plenty of newborn boy clothes and diapers... working on a few more covers for the newbie... but diapering is nearly "under control" I think.

I'd love any advice/input! Thanks!
My DS will be 20 months when his borther is born. He also used to sleep well in his crib, but we got him a twin bed, and got a rail for it and I think he actually sleeps better in the big bed! He is 14 months. I have also considered potty training him before little brother comes... I'm going to wait until he's 18 months, and if it's not time yet, we'll know for sure! He's starting to tell me that he's pooped, and I think he knows when he needs to, but doesn't have control of wether it comes out or not!
