Anyone have 3 kids? Or are you a middle child of 3 kids?
DH and I are beginning our TTC journey for our third and last baby. My only concern is "middle child syndrome". I'm worried she won't feel as loved as the oldest or the youngest, or get enough attention. Even if I did everything right, my mom says I shouldn't have a third because she doesn't want my current youngest to be a middle child and deal with that.
Is there any truth to any of this? Can any moms confer?
ETA: Wow! This is one of those featured posts on the front page! I feel kinda special, lol. Seriously though, thanks for all you ladies' insights. All of this has definitely made me second guess having a third. While I trust my parenting skills, I don't want my middle to ever feel like she isn't as important and the way some of you describe it, you could do everything right and "MCS" could still happen.
She's a very clingy, needy personality as it is, and even my oldest DEMANDS your attention, and if she can't get it, will act out. I'm going to concentrate on the two I have for now, and I think worry about adding to my brood later!
