For those with 3 kids or more under the age of 7?

How on earth do you do it? Any ideas? Tip? Ways to make sure that I don't go crazy?

  • My kids are 4, 4, 3 (well she will be 3 next month) and I am currently almost 20 weeks pregnant with my son....It really isn't as hard as it sounds! I love having so many little kids :)

  • I just remember to breathe and pick my battles.
    I have 3 sons...ages 6, 4, 2. My oldest has behavioral issues so days are a constant challenge.

    Ive just learned to breathe so I dont get too stressed and feeling overwhelmed and I also am learning to pick the battles. What is and isnt really important or pertinent at that moment in time.

  • my kids are older now but I had 3 kids under 7 once and it was fine. Just allow for extra time when you get ready to go places. It isnt any harder than doing 2... just one extra kid.

  • I had 4 kids under 6. I don't think it was that hard. I taught my kids to be self-reliant and independent so they were able to do things for themselves (like get their own food and drinks).
    I actually had 3 kids under 3 at one time and didn't find that all that hard either. They were all in diapers together for like 8 months.
    Now I have 5 kids (10, 8 1/2, 7 1/2, 4 and 3 weeks). So far it's a piece of cake.
