  • When you feel that you are ready for another one. Their is NO best time to try for another. We wanted to try for another when our daughter was turning 2, so we did, and had a mc. So we tried again when our daughter turned 3 in December. We got pregnant right away, and I am 16 weeks pregnant! So it is all up to you and your SO. I personally wouldn't of had it any other way. I have spent a lot of time with my daughter, and now I feel this is the perfect age for her to understand what is going on. She already is so happy about the baby!

  • i think personally that 2 years difference between kids is the best. now my first two were 16 months apart and that was a little to close for comfort but now my youngest is 17 months so we are trying for number 3 and they will be a little over 2 years apart. really it is always up to you and how you feel about your kids being close together. so good luck.

  • I say get going. for me I have 19 siblings. (not kidding) and we are all close in age going down the line of us anyways. My older brother and younger sister are only a year older and a year younger than me. But we are close! my oldest sister and youngest brother arent that close with eachother.
