  • My DS is 38 months older than DD. I love the age difference! They get along really well (they are 7 and 4 now). When DD was an infant he loved helping with her, but he was also really good about playing by himself. Right now, they are the best of friends, so this age span has worked really well for us.

  • Well this is a good age gap actually...My first two are 16mos apart and the gae gap between my middle child and 3rd is about 3y, 4mos to be exact! LOL The gap was nice gave my body a break and they have a better concept of when mommy has to care for baby. They can also do small things to help. It was alot easier than a newborn and 16mos old...Both were esentially babies!

  • My younger two are 32 months apart. It works well, easier than the gap between my first two of 22 months. It gets hectic because you have an infant and a toddler, but honestly, it didn't seem that difficult to me when they were little and it just gets easier as they are getting older.

  • My sister and I were 36 months apart. I think it was a great age difference. Too far apart to be jealous, yet close enough to play. I think it's perfect!
