  • You just kind of go with the flow and it will be crazy the first few months. I had 3 under 3. My oldest was 28 months and my son was 13 months when my 3rd child was born. I tried to do everything for everyone and ended up having a nervous breakdown when the baby was 4 months old. It's basically impossible to survive on 4 hours of sleep a night, take care of 3 kids and a husband and keep the house perfect, etc. I wasn't eating (didn't have time), couldn't sleep (the baby or my husband's snoring kept me up) and never did anything but chase after kids and clean. After the breakdown I calmed down a lot. The house is always a wreck but I'm not so depressed and feeling crazy. Those kids are 9, 8 and 7 now and I also have a 3 1/2 yo (she'll be 4 in April) and I'm due in July with #5.
    Congrats and good luck with the little ones.

  • sounds like what i was scared of! thanks and i will keep my peace if that means the house only gets cleaned once a week! congrats on the new baby! 5 is amazing i only want 4 but am young and may have more later in life when we have more money but for now 3 is a good # for our money!

  • I do buy them the same thing already its just cute :) like my boys have the same clothes and they get most of the same stuff other then food and a few other things that u cant give a 9 month old! and i learned to give the same to little kids because of my moms younger 3 they fight about everything! Like mine is blue i wanted red when its the same thing just diffrent colors!

  • I don't have any advice for you but I am in the same boat... I have a 2 yr old, a 4 yr old, and I am 15 weeks pregnant with twins! I'm sure everything will work out fine for you ... you will get used to it and everything will come naturally!
