When is a good time to stop having children?

I'm 25 with 1 child but want 2 more. Do you think having a child around 27 is too old?

  • Okay..I'm borderline offended/upset here. Twenty-seven too old to have kids?

    I had my first at 37 and last at 40.

  • 27?!?! Too old?!?! Hah! I was 40 and I'm not the oldest on here by far!

    When is a good time to stop? When you think you won't have the energy to keep up with a toddler or, as americansugar says, when your eggs are all gone.
    If you want them and can care for them, go for it until you hit menopause!

  • I was almost 29 when my first was born. My sister is 30 and doesn't have kids and is planning to. 27 is definitely not too old to have a kid

  • my mom had her youngest at 37... she's a great kid... at 8 years old she is best friends with my 6 year old...lol (she had me at 20)

    IShe has been at very different stages in her life with each of us... I am 25, my brother is 15 and my sister is 8. I think we all got a great childhood, and have a great momma

  • I was 34 when I had my last one. You've got plenty of time.
