Re: Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

I know the feeling. My youngest is 7months (8months on the 19th). He is my 3rd lo and I want another so bad. I have even been thinking about secretly buying diapers for a newborn. Dh says we might not have another, because we might not be able to afford it once he gets out if the army (still isn't sure if he wants to get out or not). So I kind of feel like if he sees that with me breast feeding and cloth diapering that here won't be a lot to buy for a new baby that he will be willing to have another. We have agreed to keep all of our lo's baby stuff just incase. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that in 2-3 years he will be up for having one more.

I am the exact opposite. I want a third child so bad but I really don't want to go through the newborn stage again. I wish I could give birth to a toddler instead of a newborn

Re: Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

Nah, I'm good. My youngest was WAY WAY too high needs for me to ever consider another baby ever. EVER. I'm still recovering from his babyhood and he's 5. I'm jealous of people who have easy and just relatively NORMAL babies. He traumatized me, and I used to be a baby junkie.

I LOL when I read that, cause I would like to have them smaller not larger !

I do want another and I die when I see a new squishy, but I don't have it so bad as to do it right now. My SN kid is exhausting right now and I'd like to wait until he is in preschool. DH however has it baaaad! This is the longest we have gone without getting pregnant. It's very enlightening for me because my youngest also weaned and it's great to have my self back!

I give in to the diaper thing. I am making my newborn diapers so it's not to pricey. I know that if I wait to make them when I get pregnant I'll be to tired and sick to even try.

Re: Am I crazy with newborn fever? Are you too?

When my babies are 6-7 months I usually start getting baby fever too. I never get my cycle back that early so I'm not actually TTC, but I start thinking that maybe I want another one.

My last pregnancy wasn't nearly as bad as my first 4! I was fully prepared with Unisom & B6 but only used it once or twice!

No baby fever here, my 6 month old is still quite needy and doing daycare too doesn't make another baby sound appealing. Not to mention my tubes are tied! LOL I usually get baby fever at a year-ish... My BFF is due in Nov so I'm good to go!
