Save the example below as test.html and see how the different values for line-height generate a bigger space between the paragraphs. NOTE: I added borders to the <div> elements so you can clearly see the effect of changing the line-height. For you purposes, you will NOT need the border.

>>What should I do?
Open YOUR html page, do a print-preview to see if Page 2 actually starts at page 2. IF not, incremente the line-height of #breaker1. Repeat this step until Page 2 actually starts at page 2 of your print preview. Once you have determined the value for #breaker 1, then contentrate on #breaker2. Basically, its the same series of steps as the previous one, except now you are trying to make sure Page 3 would actually print on the third page by modifying the line-height of #breaker2 until it is pushed down so that it would print on the third page.
