I have a 5.5 week old daughter ( I know this is uber early to be thinking about :P ) and I have been thinking about whether I want another baby or not. It probably wouldn't be for at least 2 years (I had a c-section because she was breech so I have to wait 18 months anyways). I grew up with 2 sisters and 3 step-brothers and it was a gong show and I always wished that I had been an only child. But now that I'm older I have a close connection to my sisters, and I wouldn't give that up for anything. I want to give my daughter everything that I can, and I'm not sure if I would be able to do that for two kids. My hubby and I don't make a huge amount of money, we live comfortably the way we are, so I'm not sure if we would be able to financially afford another child.
So I'm wondering, what would be the pros and cons of making my daughter an only child (for us and for her)?
