  • My husband and his sister are only 11 months apart and they have a really nice relationship. They had a really hard childhood though-living in a project,not having their father around so maybe this is the reason why they are so close!

  • Well, my first one and second are the same as yours will be 16 months apart. In some ways, I think it's actually good, now they are the best friends to each other and they've played together since the 2nd one started crawling when she was 9 m/o. I only have one suggestion for you. You gotta find someone to take care of you and the older one during the day after you give birth for a couple weeks to a month so you can get enough rest during the day since you have to take care of the baby when he/she wakes up at night. Once you get enough rest and recover well during postpartum this time, you won't feel so overwhelming to have two little ones later. The hard part will pass soon enough and you'll do just fine.

  • My sister and I are only 13 months apart...I always tease my mom that she was one of those that used breastfeeding as birth control. LOL!
