I know I have posted in here before been forever but I thought even though I am not on JM much with being busy I wanted to hear some stories.
I am Shayna SAHM to Anneliese (9/22/09) and Adalyn (12/12/10) so they are 14 months apart. I love the gap now!! From day one to 8 weeks was awful but once we switched Adalyn to bottles she was a totally different baby and things have flowed nicely.
We have decided for one more. I want them close again and we are already trying! I am hoping that things flow from 2 to 3 nicely but want to hear stories of how moms of 3 closely spaced do. I am not getting myself into trouble am I? This will be our last one.
Hi there! My kids aren't quite as closely spaced as yours (21months, 17months and 17 months apart in age), but I found the transition from 2-3 kids to be a very easy one. For me, the basics were already all set up (as in how routines, meals, bedtimes etc... ran) and that didn't change when we added another into the mix.
Hello, my first two are 12 months apart and #2 and #3 are 22 months apart.. i found it really hard going from #2 to #3 but i think it depends on the baby.
Lacey was 1 and Rhianna was 2 when Lucas came along but he had colic until age 6 months, the first few months were awful, he was on antibiotics twice in the first few months for chest infection/ear infection, then we had a hospital trip due to a horrible stomach virus... putting all that aside i think it would of been fine if he was a healthy/happy baby! we couldn't do anything as he just used to scream, the thought of going out with #3 made me want to cry.
Once he hit 6 months things became much easier especially when colic started clearing up the ages now are 4, 3 and 1 and its nice going out as a family and seeing them all play, they are all in the same routine as far as bedtime goes, so we get the evenings to ourself
my first 2 were 23 1/2 months apart and my 2nd and 3rd babies were 14 months apart and i've got to admit I prefered the closer. now with the 1st having that farther gap he's older... but just still not old enough to be a huge help (he's still 3) but I like to think I would have parented differently if they had been closer and we wouldn't be struggling so much to discipline with him
