My husband and I have been considering having another baby. We have a daughter who is almost 2 and NEVER leaves my side. My main concern is that even though she will be about 3 or older when we have our second, that she will feel left out or that too much attention will be taken off her while caring for the new baby. I wanted to wait until she was 3-4 to start trying so she will be old enough to enjoy it and be part of it with us, but my husband keeps mentioning having one and so does everyone else, so now its got me thinking, but I just cannot decide. Will having another make our daughter feel left out or is 3 an okay age for her to feel like the big sister and understand it a little bit. Any thoughts?? I just feel like she is my everything now, sleeps with us and everything and that with a new baby she will feel left out and I wont be able to give her the same amount of attention that I do now.
