  • Not necessarily, a friend of mine had a baby in August of 07, found out she was pregnant in November of 07 and had another baby in August of 08, her kids are 1 yr and 1 week apart

  • People have babies this close together all the time. It isn't too soon.

  • It puts a lot of stress on your body. You'll have your hands full with 2 little ones, but plenty of people do it.

  • I have 2 children (#3 on the way) my first 2 are 13 months apart. I made it through everything fine, and I had to have C-sections with both. (My first was too large, and the 2nd was too close to the first, they were worried about uterine tearing during delivery.)

    It is completely possible to handle, it was a little stressful, but the kids are very close. They feed off of each other, and play together very well, they are like best friends. Looking back, I would not have chosen to do it any other way.
    Best of luck to you, it will be a wonderful journey!

  • The docs suggest waiting two years in-between having babies, so that your body has time to replenish the lost vitamins and minerals that the baby sucks out of you. Make sure you are eating a well rounded diet, and taking all your vitamins and supplements, and you should be fine. My mom had four girls in four years, so it can be done, but it wont be easy. My boys are two years apart, and I'll tell you straight up, it's hard taking care of both of them. Good luck, and Congrats on the new baby!

  • congrats on the new baby! my friend has 2 kids that are 13 months apart and when my 2nd child is born they will be about 18 months apart. i have seen how she has to take the time for both of them. i know is not going to be easy with 2 under 2 but we have have to take one day at a time and hope the best for everything. good luck and message me if you ever wanna talk.
