most toughest decision it is when one is agree and another is disagree and baby wants sibling because she fells alone

Nicely written. I still feel that it's better to grow with a sibling instead of being a single child. I was 9 years old when my sister was born and my daughter was 5 years old when we planned our second child. we took many factors into consideration when we planned but we were able to make our elder daughter understand that it would be better to have a companion at home... they share a great bond and it's nice to watch them grow side by side

my boy n girl r just 13 months apart. now 2 n 1 years. both show love towards each other n fights too. one can manage if you have family support otherwise it's too difficult. I was a working mom but had to resign later. no family support with me. managing alone wen husband is at work. my mother is my inspiration , my bro n sis r also 1 year apart age diff . but this difficulty will b faced in the initial years only. later hard times will just disappear.

please everyone should go for two babies . it's my opinion.. y because if we have one.. they will feel alone. and they need to have Sharing to someone their feelings, emotions in their Future. we(parents) r not able spent always kids.. kids is kids.. that's it.

hai gals. i suggest atleast three yr gap . so your elder child can understand and vl accept second baby happily. you can give complete attention on both. that too working women vth no family support hv to think properly before going for second baby. before planning second baby be prepared ur self .

Decision must b taken at the right time and should firm on it! Later shouldn't feel and repent for it. This still worsen the situation. So think twice and act wise!

oh yez tough to decide about second child. whether to have or not especially when one partner is ready and the other not. And when you decide to go ahead it could be late. Then comes sibling rivalry.

I planned my second daughter when my son was 4 yrs old, they have 5 yrs gap. My son is very understanding and adjustable. He is the caretaker of his lil sister. I enjoy seeing him taking care care of his lil sis with utmost care.
