Working, BFing and multiple young kids?
My DD is only 11 months old, but because I was already in the lovely "Advanced Maternal Age" category when I had her, I'm already in the "when to have more kids?" mind-set. My DH is in the "Can we not think about that right now?" mind-set. We both work more than full-time, and it would be tough to change that too much -- our jobs are demanding but about as fulfilling as they can be. We have a great nanny and I assume she'd stick with us if we had another baby. But I can't imagine how we'd handle more than one, as we feel so overwhelmed now. Like Jim Gaffigan says (about having his 5th kid), "Imagine you're drowning, and then someone hands you a baby." Ha-ha, that's how I already feel with one!
How are those of you that have two full-time working parents with multiple young kids handling it? I figure we need to decide in the next couple years, so I was thinking maybe around when DD is 3 would be our best shot before I'm too old.
