  • I think you just know when you are ready to have a second child. I also do not believe that all families need more than one child. My sister has only one child and she feels like her family is complete and she does not want to have any other children. While I didn't feel like my family was complete until my youngest son was born. My hubby and I have 3 boys and after he was born we both felt like our family was complete. Before he was born though we both felt like there was a person missing if that makes any sense at all.

  • Good luck with that :-) I'm in the same boat. What I've learned is that 18 months is WAY too close together for me, and 7 years seems to be way too far apart. I personally like about 3 years, but that's probably because I don't know any babies or kids who are siblings born 3 years apart from each other.
