Is it crazy to want another baby

After just having one?

My baby is only about seven months old. And I'm not thinking right away, but maybe when she's a year old, trying for our third because we really want to try for a boy and then be done.

So do you think a year after having a baby is too soon? I'm going to be 30 by the time she's a year old.

  • Expense is one thing. But where are you going to get the energy?
    What if it is not a boy?

  • I have. And I thought of the diapers and everything. And I've weighed the pros and cons. I do worry about having two babies in diapers and I worry about even more lack of sleep. But then I think of how much I really want another one and how I would love to try for a son and then I can close up shop! I know those reasons are selfish, because what if the only boy ends up feeling lonely and resentful (like me cause I'm the only girl). I would hate to put him through that. I dunno. Lots to think about.

  • You know the third could be another girl? If so are your going to try for a forth? You can get pregnant righ now if you want.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it and then again my little ones have 17 and 19 months in between them. When the third was born they were all in diapers. It was not a big deal, you just make due and adjust. I love it and wouldn't have it any other way. I have 3 girls too and I love that.

  • Hey children are a blessing. If you want a child then go for it. Imagine all the women that cant have children, and have tried for years. Its sad to think about the women who just give them away so easily. (CRAZY) But hey if its the financial thing just potty train your little one early, My daughter is not even two yet, and she is potty trained. I am 5 months pregnant, so i trained her early. I dont wanna change diapers all day for two kids. So good luck, and i hope you find the answer your looking for. Take care
