Hi, I haven't posted before, but have been a member for a while. I'm sure this is a common question, but couldn't find any answers using the search option.
My husband really doesn't want another child, and having grown up with a brother who is now one of my best friends, I mourn the thought of not having a sibling for my one-year-old son.
He has been a very difficult baby (whom we love dearly), but I don't think my husband could go through it again, and maybe I'm romaticizing it, myself. I had devastating post-partum depression, and have a hard time with one, so what if I were to fall apart with two!?
Could you give me some positive experiences about having an only child (or being one or knowing someone with one), so maybe I won't feel so sad about all this? Thanks in advance.
