hello i have 3DC a 6year old 4 year old and a 5month.
after i had DD I have been feeling so super broody and I thinking I should start trying soon for another baby am i crazy?
My first 2 DC are very close and i do regret leaving such an age gap but I am not sure if it would be fair on the other kids if I had another baby so soon as I really wont have a minute. can anyone give me some advice please?

Is 4 DC crazy or not much different from 3? How did you cope being pregnant with 3 other monkies to run about after?

Well, if you or your dp work and can afford a 4th child comfortably, then why not?

I don't think there is a best age gap.
It purely depends on the children and their temperaments and personalities!

I am one of 4 and I loved it growing up. When my youngest sister was born we were 7, 5 and 20 months. My mam said it wasn't much different going from 3 to 4 but my sister was a surprise.

We all still get on really well now and we are 29, 27, 24 and 22.

I would never have four though, mainly because my husband works 7 days a week and I'm bloody exhausted with 2 smile although part of me would love the big family.
