  • 2 to 3 years apart is good. Still close enough to get along when they are older.

  • Well on my view; its a good time. Each one of my kids are 2 1/2 yrs apart and they are great. Not too long not too soon.

  • This is a totally personal question, in the sense that no one can really tell you when you're ready for another. But I will say this... I have a brother who is 6 years younger than me and personally I feel like it was just too much. Alot of times we had more of a mother-son relationship because of the extreme difference.

  • If you feel like you are ready and could handle it then it isn't too soon. There is 9 years between my 1st and 2nd and now there will be 2 1/2 between my 2nd and 3rd. It is really an indicidual matter and only you can you SO can decide when it is right to have another.

  • I have 2 yrs. b/t my 2 and I think it is perfect. It is difficult having 2 in diapers though!

  • I don't personally think there is ever a wrong time to have another baby! :) Most of my children are about 18 months apart, although there's a 3 year gap between #2 and #3. My kids who are close in age get along great, and so do the ones who are far apart, like my oldest two daughters who are 7 years apart and very close (had three boys in between).
