My daughter is 7 months old and im asking myself wether or not I want to have another baby? I was an only child which was very challenging for me, I am still jealous of people with brother and/or sisters and I would love for my daughter to have another sibling. Yet the thought of being pregnant and giving birth again makes me feel like curling up and crying. Being pregnant was probably the most horrific experience for me, I hated it more then anything (I preferred giving birth to being pregnant) So my question is what do other people think about growing up as an only child?

  • In the end it’s only you and your husband who can decide.


  • I think if you’re daughter is still only 7 months old, you have time to delay thinking about it until she is a little older. I think as a parent, having 2 children is (eventually) easier as they play with each other and keep themselves occupied a lot.


  • my friend is an only child her mum and dad both passed away and now she hasn’t got a partner she feels so lost. I feel blessed to have my sisters.
