Do you think larger families are making a comeback? Do you think there's a trend to having children later in life?

FCL responded:
There is most certainly a trend towards having children later in life in Europe. depending on the country the age at which women are having their first child is between 28 and 30.

As for generally having babies later, I think we have forgotten that our grandmothers and earlier generations were all still having children in their late 30s and 40s because they did not have the contraceptive methods we have now. We still haven't reached the number of "late babes" that there were before the pill (and contraceptive awareness) arrived ...

I agree FCL, My hubby had 5 siblings and 2 are over 10 years older than he is.

How many mothers are involved? It seems like he is just having a few average sized families that blend in to one big one. :)

I don't know if larger families are making a comeback or not. I have 4 kids and it doesn't really seem all that uncommon around here. But when we went on vacation this summer and stayed in a large city, I was amazed at all the comments we got from people. We really felt like we were making a spectacle every where we went.

That is strange katieb,

Here, I walk around with 4 kids all the time. (2 mine, and 2 grands but everyone assumes they are all mine.) I live in a big city and no one ever gave me a problem.
