  • Good for you for having 3 years with your first before having a second baby. My first was three and a half years old when my second was born, my second was four and a half years old when my third was born. I think any time now is a good time to get pregnant. How much into the threes is your child? I did not want to kids in diapers at one time unless I was surprised with multiples. And I wanted my olders to be not real baby like in addition to that. Although now my oldest is 25 years old and he still has temper tantrums actuallly. sigh it goes on forever but the intensity lessens!!! jk jk!!

    This is a good age about now or even older cause your oldest isn't a baby anymore. Maybe your boyfriend is concerned about money or that because of your other relationoship you might not make it? Maybe try counselling? Good Luck mommy.

  • My kid is almost three and I'm about to have my second. So...maybe ask me in a month and I'll be able to say?

  • Hubbie and I have a 6 1/2 month old, and wont be "trying" for another for at least a couple of our son will be probably 3 or better by the time we have a second.

  • my daughter was 3 when i was pregnant with my son so i think like a good 3 year space is good as long as your other children are all out of pampers and potty trained i think that is a good reason to try for another child good luck!
