It's preference and depends on from person to person. I personally have done both....my oldest was 6 months old when I got pregnant with my second. It was hard at firs, but not as terrible as some may think. I think the worst part was having 2 carseats and 2 sets of diapers to change. Then we waited from my middle to my youngest and last son. My middle one was about 2.5 when we got pregnant with the baby. To me, that was harder. Both my older sons were potty trained, no more middle of the night wake ups, they played together, they ate pretty much on their own...it was like starting over alllllllllll over again. My husband and I debated on trying again after having him and I told him we had 3 months to decide b/c I wasn't going to space them out like that again. It's a little tough at first having them close together, but in the end and overall I say a lot easier than waiting. Good luck on the decision!
