People get all worked up about 'slow development.' But by the time we're in JH, we're all pretty much on the same level. Introducing a 3rd language may very well confuse a daycare-aged child for a week or two. They might even speak a mishmash of multiple languages until they're about 7 or 8 years old, but more likely they'll simply figure out that each context has a different tongue. So what?
The payoff is much too huge to worry about whether my kid isn't quite as quick to learn as the neighbour's.

The only caveat is if the kid shows true language difficulty. But in that case, I feel the kid would be struggling regardless if there was only 1 language to deal with.
Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
Go for it! You'll be glad you did!
I'd say go for it!
