  • Yep.
    I started doing daycare. That took care of my baby hunger (and I got paid for changing diapers!)

  • I've been there. Do you have any friends with babies who would love a babysitter for a night? Might be a great thing to offer up.

  • You say you are ONLY 26 as if you are too young. That is a normal healthy age to start having children. Try to love up everyone elses children or talk to you DH about having another.

  • we just got a kitten, so the animal thing only kind of cured me. but not for too long. haha.
    and DH and i really do want another baby, but we wanted to wait until our son is five and in school.

    i tried to love up to these women i know that are having babies and none of them seem to love the idea of my asking to hold or be with their baby! i'm not sure why. but it's annoying. ha!

  • I am 27 and I had my boys when I was 17 and19. Now I want a dd so bad. I have always loved kids and now I just want another one so bad. I think everyone is different and you feel how you feel. Only you know if it is the right time to have another one. Don't feel like you are not suppose to feel this way. Good Luck!!!!!!

  • Get a pet - a kitten or a puppy. You will have plenty of messes to clean and have to feed them plenty. (c:
