Parents of 3 or more, talk to me about the “caboose” baby
I have two children less than a year apart who are extremely bonded and seem to be joined at the hip most of the time. It’s a special relationship that has been really good for both of them. Now we’re considering #3 but the age gap from the two older kids would be at least 5 years. 😱 Are we going to regret having one so much younger than the other two? I’m worried it would create a third wheel situation where they grow up more like an only child and outsider to their siblings. One mom even told me if I want 3 to plan for 4 so the third one can have a sibling they can be close to!
