  • Unfortunately no one on here can make that decision for you. Only you know your family and what is best for it. Everyone has different opinions on what a good age difference is. And you must take into finances and your overall mental sanity as well. GL!

  • It's not too soon if you can handle it. Remember you'll have two young kids instead of one and that can be stressful. But millions of women have done it. Also make sure you are financially ready as well!

  • My kids are 20 months apart. If you are ready for another one, it is not too soon.

  • I personally don't think that's too soon. Our boys are 2 years and 1 month apart and I am so glad we did it that way. We're going to be TTC this Fall as well...we're starting in September though and we have to stop by February for a couple of months to avoid having another December baby.

  • My kids are 17 months apart, so, it wasn't too soon for me!

  • I am a psychology student and in my early childhood development class we learned that for the sibling, the best time to have another baby is before they are 18 months or after they are three. Between those ages it's hard on them because they are learning who they are themselves and how they fit into a family.
