milk production sooner with second pregnancy?

Quick question. With my first son my milk didnt come in for almost a week after he was born making breastfeeding hard. Has anyone had better luck on their second pregnancy and it coming in faster? Did you do anything to help it come in? Im due with my second son in April.
