I am expecting baby number four. I have not told but a few people. My dh's family is very unsupportive of large families. She has made comments about my sister's family who she doesn't even know. She has literally said things to me like "you just can't love more than two kids". We didn't tell dh's family about Brandon till after he was born. I am wondering how you deal with family and friends that truly believe that you can not give your kids the attention they need if you have a large family.

you know what
if your paying for them then this should not be an issue

my family is always comenting negatively and they are rewarded by me with silence.

Its their loss not mine or yours for that matter.

Ignore your family and friends that's what I say!!!! Your family size is none of their business.

I can't offer any other advise, no one around me is unsupportive of my family size.
