When you chose to have another child? whether it's #2, #3 or #6. If you had every intention of having another baby, what would help you decide the time is right? what factors helped you decide whether the time was right or not?

If we have the financial means and feel like we are just ready for another. If it was up to me then we would have been TTC right after LO was born but luckily I had DH there to keep me sane.

Both of my pregnancies weren't planned but they are three years & two months apart. For my third I will be waiting until my youngest is 3.5-4 years old bc I want her out of the terrible two's/three's stage haha. Plus I think 3-4 years is good spacing for kids.

I wanted to be done with nursing school. That was the main factor.

i want to wait till DD's out of diapers ideally. (don't want to be changing diapers all day). DH just got a job last wk but it's great pay. the bills should be caught up soon, then we're probably going to work on fixing the house up. if he can keep this job and i can get a job before DDs potty trained, i'd like to start ttc once she is pt'd. only thing is, we live in a 3 bedroom house with MIL...

Yes I just posted something similar. I'm trying to decide whether or not to have another.

I want my babies to be sleeping through the night, toilet trained preferably & at school/preschool before i have another. - money at the moment isnt an issue, its more my well being/coping im concerned about.



That'll mean my days are free when the kids are at kindy/school and i'll be able to have 1 on 1 time with the new baby.. nap when they nap etc.



Having kids 1 1/2 years apart has been quite straining emotionally/physically etc.

We lived in a tiny house with 2 kids under the age of 2 and MIL for a year while we saved for a house.

I would prefer DD to be three when I give birth and sleeping in her own bed.

idk i kind of feel like in a small way it would be like starting over. i want to spend a few yrs being a SAHM for the most part (working night shift maybe). then once all my kids start school i can focus on an actual career. know it sounds a bit backwards but oh well.

That is our thing is the diapers. DH finally got an amazing job and in March when he gets his raise we are going to be starting our savings account back up and I will be going to Paul Mitchell school in August. It is exciting.
