At the moment my oldest is being a shitbag, my toddler is crying and having a serious tantrum. And the baby is being perfect as always. Lol



I don't have any cons really, just the age gaps I have. My son and first daughter are 4 years apart. My 2 daughters are 19months apart, they're 2 and 4.5months. I struggle with this age gap.

The only con is that you're out numbered. I have 3 girls 5/3/1. The two older are both extremely hands on and when we brought DD3 home from the NICU (she was 7weeks early) they were awesome at keeping each other occupied while I was breastfeeding their baby sister. They never had any crazy jealousy fits, I think because they had each other and we made sure they knew the baby was just as much theirs as ours. I think maybe the only other con is having to have a bigger vehicle, but we've made 3 across work fabulously with our 08 cobalt. We'll upgrade to a bigger vehicle sooner or later (like if I get pregnant again, cross your fingers it doesn't happen!) lol but for now it's all good.

This is what I'm nervous about. My son and daughter are almost exctly 4 years apart but t daughte and this one will be just over two years apart. I don't know how I'm going to handle a terrible two who is still nursing and cosleeping and a newborn.



ETA: I think the four years between my first two is the PERFECT age difference.

Why? My two ate three Weeks shy of two years apart. If I had another it'd be almost three years younger than my youngest

Pros-My older 2 are helpers with my baby, there's always some excitement going on at home, watching them play well together.




Cons-it's harder to go out and get things done like grocery shopping. Need a bigger backseat or vehicle, we've been using my husband's truck for a few days now and it's a hassle putting 3 carseats in it. Going out places like eating out can get hectic.



When I say it like this it sounds like more cons haha but we have always wanted a bigger family and I do not regret having 3, in fact we might have one more. I do say
space between the kids has to it with it as well not just the number of children. And honestly money isn't much of an issue maybe when they get older I'm sure I will notice it more but not really now.

I don't really know why I just think the 4 year gap was heaps heaps easier. My son understood more. This time I can't leave the baby unattended because
My toddler Isla doesn't understand, she jealous and really acting out at the moment. SHe's noisy and constantly wakes the baby up.
I don't feel like I get to enjoy the baby because I have a toddler to run around after, and vice versa with my toddler, i have Aura (baby) too. My son was at Kindy when I had Isla so I had lots of time with just her.
I don't know I just don't like it and will never ever have another gap like this again. Lol
