“I have 3 boys! When I had my first baby, I was so in love I couldn't wait to have a second. 2 years after I had my first baby, I had baby no. 2 — and it was another boy!
"My mum was able to help me out with the 2 boys. 3 adults handling 2 children was manageable and we could still have holidays as a family.
"Now I have baby no. 3 — yet another boy. But I don’t regret anything!” — Devonna, mum of 3
Another mum had this to say:
“In my opinion keeping the age gap close (at most 2 years) makes it easier to handle both together. Having family to help out gives you and your husband time to spend together.
"I grew up with 3 siblings and it was awesome and even now we know we have each other's backs, so I know my kids will also have each other to depend on when I’m gone.” — Michelle
Another mum, Shanti, had this to say:
“Remember when baby no. 2 arrives you have already gained so much experience handling baby no. 1. So feeding, diapering and everything else will be so much easier!” — Shanti, mum of 2
One more mum had this to say:
"I was worried I wouldn’t remember what to do as my firstborn was out of nappies and more independent. But everything was OK, as us mums just have to get on with it and it all comes flooding back. Just go with instinct!” — Upsala, mum of 2
