Going from 3 to 4 Rss

I have three boys aged 1, 6, and 7. My husband and I want another child but we are concerned about what kind of workload this will mean. does anyone out there have four and can tell me what we are in for?

Congratulations that must also be exciting for you and your family

1 wonderful boy 6 and another on the way

From what I know you will need to get a bigger car. I don't think family dynamics changes all that much though. If you can cope with 3, you can cope with 4.

Good luck.
I have just gone from 3 to 4 children. My son is now 6 weeks old and my other children are 8 yo twins and a 5 yo daughter. I also have 2 stepdaughters, aged 14 and 8. To me the only hard part about it is trying to get the girls ready for school of a morning as he wants to be fed at this time and feeding the girls dinner as also he wants a bottle. I just start to cook dinner earlier now and the girls are helping me both day and night. Good luck. But its not that hard.

I have 4 and found going from 3 to 4 was just as easy as going from 2 to 3!
We had to get a bigger car, and we now have a bigger house, but that was part of the plan when we had 3 anyway.
My 4 are 6, 4, 2 (nearly 3) and 1.
It's hard around school pick up and drop off, but you learn to juggle that pretty quick! Have a good routine in place and you'll be fine!

Hi there,
I have 4 also, (ages 7, nearly 6, 3 1/2 and 1) and i was going to say the same as Nic Doula mum 2 4 said, i also found it as easy going from going 2-3, i actually found going from 1-2 harder!
And its not as hard as some make it out to be, not that im saying its a walk in the park, but you do learn pretty quickly how to work around some things. Again, a good rountine helps!

Good luck with yr decision smile

To those with more than 3 children; what cars do you drive? We just bought a 2nd hand pajero, which has 7 seats. But to fit pram, stroller, groceries etc into the back the 2 rear seats need to be up. We just had our 3rd child (6 weeks, 20 months and 3) and I would like more. But how do you fit them into the car?

Hello. I have the same car and have 3 kids. We are thinking about number 4 and i'm worried about room too. I think i will be ok as my oldest is at school so will only need the back seat when picking and dropping her off. My girls are 5 1/2, 3 and 19mths. I think you should look at a people mover as they have the most room and space for pram and shopping.
Good luck.

We actually have the same cars as we started out with, a 2 door car and a biggish 4door car, we normally never go out as family and if we go away we always took the 2 cars,(like on holiday). And with 2 of the kids at school, they take the bus 2 and from on so i have rm in the car as i have only 2 at hme or dropping 1 at kindy etc during school hours.
But we are looking at buying a people mover of some kind coz we plan on having more kids, something with a bit of power 2, so cant help you there sorry sad
