My husband and I are about to start fertility drugs for baby #2 and Im just wondering how difficult it might be in the beggining for all of us. Is balancing two children instead of one really that hard? Will my son more the likely want to help and be big brother or will he turn away and get jelouse? I can see my son doing both but more bieng a big help and wanting to hold baby. What has your experiance been like?Answer Question
When I had my second son my first son was only 26 months old so it was very hard at times. My sister in law had her children 3 years apart and she said that seemed to make a big difference. Her 3 year old was a big help with her new baby where as my 2 year old just wanted to be held by Mommy and did not want the crying baby in our house. It seems like in your situation you kids will be a little further apart so that will be good. Having 2 little ones takes some time to get use o but it can also be really great especially when they get old enough to start playing together. My boys are know 4 years and 22 months old so they play together great know and it is so much fun to see what the two of them are going to come up with. I hope this helps you some and good luck having a new baby!
