3 is a good age for another. My tip would be start potty training, if you havent. Easier when only one is in diapers.

By 3 your first will be interested in helping and excited for the baby... I wouldn't be too worried, that's a great age gap!

You'll be fine. Three years is a good amount of space.

Mine won't even be two when this one is here and I'm not sure what to expect. Lol



At three they should be old enough to get excited!

tips?
well, save money as much as you can,
include your 2 year old as much as you can in the process, you will be happy you did,
sleep when your 2 year old sleeps or naps,
talk to other mothers in the same situation,

relax, it will be fine mama.

This. I made sure my oldest (who was 3 1/2) was potty trained before my youngest was born. Having two kids in diapers seems like a nightmare scenario to me but unfortunantly looks like that's what Ill be dealing with when #3 is here in April.

My daughter will be 27 months when this one is born. We're working on PTing right now and she's doing fabulously, but I just hope it sticks and she doesn't regress. Get some big siblings/my new baby type books.. My daughter loves them. Spend time around other babies if you can. She loves babies. I think she's going to love helping out.

oh sweetie! you'll be fine! it'll be an adjustment at first but you can do it!! i had my first 9/11/09 got pregnant with my second that christmas, had him 9/17/10 lol now
that was hard!!!! best tips i can give are relax, get on a schedule asap, and know that nobody is supermom...dont stress about the little things. ask for help, by 3 she will be old enough for a part time school which will benefit the both of you! congratulations!

Thank you everyone I'm have stated potty training her like a week or so again she is going good i guess she ain't to the point of telling me yet. Its nice that we have to pee at the same time lol. But i haven't gone to a doc yet. So i should be one about a month but i feel farther then that. I feel like i did when i was 4 months with my little girl. Is that normal?
