I have a 2 1/2 old son and we are really enjoying him! everything is great! Travelling is easier, everything is easier, we can devote lots of time to him. my husband and I cannot decide whether to have another child? We are scared to death! We don't wNt to go back to newborn age, sleepless nights, teething, sleep problems etc......

It is getting close to that time when we have to decide. I know here are pros also, .lie my son having a sibling and how cute a small

Baby is, but right now the cons are more than the pros. I am scared and my husband seems to be leaning more towards not having a second one. Would it be terribly wrong to only have on child? Am I going to regret it?

Hi, I can't really answer this question for you.
I've always wanted lots of children and although I have 2 already we have decided to have one more. (I would have babies for the rest of my life if my hubby and bank balance would allow it)
Having said that I do not think it is "wrong" to only have one child, it's your choice at the end of the day, if you don't think you can cope I would say no, don't have another.
However, I do have a lot of only child friends who said they had a lot more stuff growing up but lacked the friendship of a sibling. I guess if your son is well socialized this wouldn't matter.
I'm sorry if this doesn't help much but no-one can make this decision for you.
Good luck! :-)
