  • Whenever you feel ready. They say to wait 6 months after you stop nursing, so that your body can build its nutrient stores back up, but if you don't, it's not going to hurt you. My son is just 4 months, and I'm already feeling the urge! (Not going to, tho, for awhile!!) My cousin found out she was pregnant when her daughter was 5 months old. A friend of mine found out on her daughter's first birthday that she was pregnant. So it's really a matter of how far apart you want them.

  • I just had a baby on Dec. 21st and my oldest is turning 21mo. Its dificult with the language barrier but then again they will grow up close enough in age hopefully get along. My 21mo. just loves to help me take care of the new baby. Always getting my things. diapers, bottles. its a good bond they will have. But when your ready you know it and remember its still atleast 9mo away lol

  • We are talking about it now and my daughter is about to turn 2 in 2 weeks. I wanted her to be at least 3 when we have another one so that she wont feel left out and she can be part of the whole thing. I just started taking my prenatal vitamins a couple of weeks ago and in another 2 or 3 Im going to go off my birth control.

  • I got prego (planned) with my 2nd when my first turned 1. We wanted them to grow close and be close in age. For that reason, I'm glad I did it...but the stress of having 2 little ones gets to me sometimes. The oldest is 2 now and the LO is 8 months. It's challenging but I know it will be worth it in a few years!
