    Default Thinking about no3!

    So my hubby and I are thinking about trying for no3 next year and would love some feedback on things! I have two girls they are 4yo and 21 months, to say the least the are a handful ! We had our 1st out in 8 months and have only slept away for 1 night! So questions it no 3 going to make much of a difference? Age gap good bad ? Any advice would be great! Tia

    no advice here too but your kids's ages are exactly the same as mine and im hoping to have another next year. I thinks the gap is good, DD who's almost two can now entertain herself for a bit, ask whenever she needs anything and is almost out of nappies. DS well hes a big guy in kindy and can also take care of DD so that'l give me time to concentrate on baby lets say 2 years later when they are 4 and 6

    I only have 2, but my ds was nearly 5 when I had #2 and it was a good gap. He was quite independent by then, able to get his own food from the pantry (for snacks, etc), get himself dressed, etc, etc and that really made a huge difference. He was & still is a great help with dd - loving her from day 1 and enjoying entertaining her. But when he's at Kinder I get that one-on-one time with dd too. dd settled into a nice daytime routine straight away on kinder days and so although it's a hassle to go out for the kinder runs twice a day it actually helped get bub into routine.

    I think you'll find it's a great gap for all 3, cause your #2 will be quite independent by the time #3 comes along too!

    I think the age gap would be great. Better than mine anyway with 1 minute between #2 and #3. LOL

    I think 3 is a good number.

    Hi there,
    As you can see I have an almost 5 year old, 2.5 yr old and 4 mth old. The 2-2.5yr gap is a good one. My oldest is very independent and able to do things with my DS2 while I am feeding my bub. Number 3 was not really planned but now he is here i wouldn't trade him for the world. It has not really been a big leap from 2-3 ,you just need to be organised.
    HTH
