How far apart is a good age to have kids?

like my mom waited 3 years with my sister and me. And then my aunt had my cousin and then 10 years later had my other cousin....see 10 year is too long.

  • What ever is right for you and your family. We have a almost 5 year old and a 1 year old. We tried for 1 year before we got pregnant with our second.

  • My girls are 3 years apart. I think that's good b/c you already have experience with the first child so they're not too close together.

  • Its all depending on how you feel after your first pregnancy. I think I'll have my kids one-two years apart but then wait after awhile then have more.
