  • My girls were 4 1/2 years apart. I felt this was perfect. The 4 1/2 year old was great help. My granddaughters are 3 1/2 years apart, it's not so good. At 3 1/2 she is still plenty jealous and not able to help out alot.

  • Hi. My son is now 4 years old since of Jan. and we are expecting baby number 2. My due date is Dec. 13th so our 2 kids will be about 5 years apart. I also have 2 step daughters who are 8 and 10 yrs. old but we barely see them. I wish my kids were closer in age but then once the my son goes to college, I will have extra time to bank money for the next one. :-)
