  • How ever many you can handle without going insane. That being said, I think 3 is as many as I can handle.

  • The perfect number is not going to be the same for everyone. Some people are comfortable with one child; some what a large family. As long as you can provide for & take care of your children, then whatever number you like is perfect.

  • When a friend was pregnant for the third time she was worried "because now they will out number me and my husband"! lol
    Lisa89j has it right, will be different for everyone. I have four and can not imagine not having them all. Maybe, with a capital M I would have had more if I did not work full time!

  • There is no perfect number for everyone. Each family has their personal perfect number. For my family - 4 children.
