  • my first two are 17months apart(got preggo when dd was 8 months) my second two are almost 2.5 years apart.

    I think it is a personal OP my kids play together real well but do fight a lot.

  • I have two 22 months apart and two 11 months apart. Personally, I recommend the bigger age difference.

  • It's up to you mama!! How is your little one!?? Is he very clingy with mommy? Or mellow and easy going? My first is very easy going so I knew she would do great with another sibling ...they are 21 months apart and if it were up to me i'd have them even closer!!

  • The thing that absolutey stinks though is being pregnant while having another little one to take care of! It's not like your first time being pregnant when you could sleep whenever and rest whenever...this time around you don't get to rest at all!! So that part stinks but it was totally worth it!! : )

  • Well, I have a son who will be 8 in November and twin girls that will be 3 in December. It is really hard having two small children to look after. My son was 5 when they were born and he was such a big help to me! I would say wait. I wouldn't want to have another child before the twins were at least 4.
