My hubby and I have been wanting another baby since our son was about 6 weeks old! We are not trying for another, but we also aren't trying to prevent it! We have a 4.5 yr old and a now 4 month old. If you feel you are ready for another then go for it!

my daughter is 22 months old and my second one is due in 4 weeks. my husband and i agreed to 2 children and thought a 2 year age difference was perfect. i think if you and your husband both agree on having another one, then i say go for it!

I have a 13 month old and wish we could right now. So I say go for it!! But we have bills to pay off first and it will probably be until my son is 2 or 3 before we can start trying again unless I get my promotion at work.

Thanks for the input... I think we are ready but some friends are saying were crazy not just having one so soon after another but this will be my 4th!!! We have decided to stop after the next baby but I kinda want my youngest to have a playmate as he grows up!! thanks again

There are a lot of things to consider. Make a list of pros and cons (do this with not only your husband but your 9 and 6 year old too). My daughter is almost two and I'm about 9 weeks pregnant with my second. I know its going to be hard at first but it will get easier. Just make sure everyone is on board with having another one because if not everyone is its going to be tough for a little while.

It's all up to you and your husband. People may tell you all they want to on this topic, but in the end that is what it comes down to. I have a set of two year old b/g twins who were 16 months old when we conceived ( by accident, was on the pill) but we couldn't be happier about it once we got over the shock. My son was born July 12th of this year. It is rough having them so close in age, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

it's completely a personal choice - if you and your family are ready and capable of taking care of another baby then there's no reason not to. my son is 12.5 months and my husband and i are going to start trying for another in a month or two
