Those with a 3 year age gap

Sep 18th, 2014, 10:44 AM   #1
How did you find it ??
OH has given me the green light to try for baby no2 but I'm unsure
I want my LO to have a brother or sister but OH didn't show any interest and then all of a sudden he's changed his mind I'm scared she will feel pushed out ect she turns 3 in December and OH is on about trying for no2 ASAP it's just down to me to get the implant removed now (its due out June next year).
I was an only child so I don't know what it's like having brothers or sisters and my OH is the oldest of 7
I worry how will I cope ect LO starts play group soon and starts nursery in January will this time round be easier as I know what to expect.

i only have the 1

however theres 3 years between myself and my younger brother and as kids- once he reached say 1.5/2 apparently we used to play together and knock around right upto end of primary school!

The only way we could every afford to have another child would be to wait untill oscar is 3 and gets his 15 hours free at nursery due to the amount i earn/worl/childcare costs etc

i personally think its a nice age gap!

My daughter was 2.5 when my son came along and although she played up a little bit in those early weeks now that he is 4 months, she adores him and he adores her. She helps with changing, dressing & feeding and likes sharing her bath with him.
The jump from 1 to 2 is tougher than 0 to 1 but it's a great age gap x
