  • Barrow a baby from a friend for a couple days....two days of screaming, crying, and poopy diapers changes your mind quickly.LOL

  • Yikes. Just think about all the sleepless nights, all the diapers, bottles, sick times, money you spend on this stuff, plus the next 18 years of your life. Ok, that does it for me. Just say NO!!

  • well you kinda answered your own question. Just enjoy the child you have now...once you have another baby, it won't be all about the other child/children. You have to split your attention and that is not always easy. My children are 21 months apart and my son (oldest) was very jealous of his little sister and very receptive to her. and showed some anger towards me. That is when his terrible twos kicked in.

    I as well would like to have another baby but I know I have my hands full with the two I have which are now 3 and 18 months. boy and girl. I do not work and my time is spent cooking, cleaning, playing, running errands, blah blah blah....I just don't have time to worry about doctors appt every month/week, more diapers, night time feeding.

  • I would love one more but I'm old enough that mother nature may not allow it. I enjoy the kids I have and remember how horrible it was to have a dairy allergic refluxer. I'm done w/diapers, nap times and the last one will go to kinder in 2010.
