    Default Next babies......

    How do you know when you are really ready for the next baby? We are thinking about starting to try for number 2. I'm excited but I'm freaking out thinking about daily life with 2! Our little girl is 18 months now, but I just worry how I will cope. We don't have family close by either!

    Same way you coped with number 1. You just adapt.
    There's no right or wrong time, just go for it.

    I honestly didn't find the jump from 1 to 2 that hard. I'm a bit nervous about the jump from 3 to 4 but like I said, we will adapt.
    Good luck!

    Yep I agree, going from 2 to 3 is much harder.

    But my second child was a very very easy baby. So I got lucky really. My third is a lot more demanding.

    So I guess it depends on the personalities of your children.
