Were thinking of having another baby while my husband is still in the military because the insurance is great! But we have a 3 year old and I'm afraid he won't be ready for a new baby.. Are my reasons silly for a new baby??Answer Question
It's a perfect time. The World Health Org recommends waiting 3 years before ttc for your body to heal so a baby has an adequate womb environment. Your 3-4 year old will be old enough to be easy to care for and doesn't need the same kind of physical attention a toddler needs. When you wait until the older sib is 5 years I think it is too long. The kids have a harder time having a close relationship because the age difference is so big that they don't have similar interests.
My oldest 2 are 3 years apart and for me it was perfect. They are now 30 and 27 and best of friends. Then there is a 5 year gap and my youngest is 22. He has always felt left out. My sister and I are 5 years apart and we never had a relationship.
