Thinking of 3rd baby

Linda - posted on 10/14/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi. I'm a mother of 2 beautiful healthy kids. Age 4 and 2. I have one of each. But I want a 3rd baby and I don't know if it's the right time. There are lots of pros and cons to having a 3rd child. I am confused any advice would be great thank you.

What does your mate think of this? This isn't a unilateral decision, and if he disagrees with you, this is the last thing I'd throw into the relationship. It will not make it all warm and fuzzy better just because you "think" you want it. And why do you want it? As the mother of two in their thirties I can tell you that your children will grow up, and you will go through many ups and downs with them that the warm and fuzzy feelings of having a baby in the house make bring. At one time when I was very young I considered having a third, and I thank my lucky stars I didn't, because it wasn't for the interest of the child, rather, for the interest of me. Kind of like teens who keep their babies so they'll have someone to love them....Poor babies...
