Make mistakes with your first child, so you know what you’re doing with your second, right?
Maggie Gyllenhaal — celebrating with Johnson & Johnson for the 125th anniversary of the First Aid Kit through a partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide — says she still continues to make mistakes with Ramona, 6½, and Gloria Ray, 14 months, all the time.
“When my first daughter was born, I remember going out without a diaper and she had pooped all over herself,” the White House Down star tells PEOPLE. “I had nothing to change her into, nothing to clean her with. I don’t know why no one told me I would need a diaper bag.”
Since then, Gyllenhaal, 35, has become a lot more organized. “I feel like being organized and having things thought through actually let’s you be a much more relaxed and cool mother,” she says.
