My kids are 3 and 2 years old and I am pregnant again. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Since my kids are still too young. Pls advice and share your experience. How old were your kids when you got pregnant again? Thanks

They were a little older than three and one when I got pregnant. They are all two years apart. They have always been very good friends. I made sure the older two were potty trained. They were both in the room, sleeping when youngest was born. If you have family to watch them that is great. They have each other to play with when you feed the baby. Not sure what they are too young for. It should be easier than when you brought home a baby with a one yr old.

Going from 2 to 3 is much easier than going from 1 to 2.

When I had my third, my oldest was 3 1/2 and my second was 17 months. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My oldest was my little "big helper".

I had my fourth when my third was 2 1/2.

I have a real hard time caring for the 3 kids I already have. I was told I am infertile by Drs so the preg is a surprise.

My oldest son was exactly 1 when I brought my newborn home. But then I had my sister to help me out for 3 months. This time I will not have anyone to help me. So I thinking to hire maybe a part time nanny/ housekeeper to help around the house and feed my kids while I take care of the newborn. But I don't know how much it will cost me

i have a 6 1/2, 5 (tomorrow), 3 and 2 yr old. and we are TTC #5. i love having  my kids close in age! they are the best of friends. but its now always butterflies and rainbows lol! they still fight like siblings. it can be crazy most of the time, but to me its so worth it. i would suggest a baby carrier for the new baby. i got one when #3 was a few months old and used it for #4. such a lifesaver! also, before your due date make a bunch of meals you can just throw in a crock pot. another life saver for me! put those in gallon size baggies and throw in the freezer. have the 3 yr old "help" you. bring you a diaper or wipes. its not as scary as it seems. if you can, get someone to watch them if you have to go shopping cause thats when it gets to be a bit of a challange.
