Cupid’s Advice:

Deciding to start a family is a huge decision and size matters. Here are some ways to decide on just how big your family should be:

1. Be selfish: It’s okay to want a small amount of children or a whole baseball team. Take time out to decide what you want. In the end, it’s your body and your decision.

2. It takes two: You’re not the only one making the babies. Talk to your partner about how big you want your family to be. Things don’t always work out the way they are planned, but being on the same page with your partner helps ease whatever surprises may come along.

3. Talk to the kids: If you already have children, adding another child is going to be a big change for the existing kids. Take time out to talk to your kids about becoming big brothers or big sisters. After all, they’re apart of the family too.
