Hungry for a baby
It's like a chemical reaction when you have space for another baby.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
'What's the one thing you still want to do?' my friend asks me.

'Hmm, I suppose travel more,' I say. 'You?'

'A third baby,' she says quickly, surprising me and even herself a bit. After all, her youngest son is already in primary school.

When you want a baby, it's like an outside force sometimes, it doesn't feel like something you're in control of.

Do you remember that feeling? Or do you have the urge for a baby growing in your heart again? Share your baby hunger stories and if your letter is chosen, you could win a Parent24 T-shirt.
