what's the closest in age you've heard of babies being?

I know a few Moms on here whose kids are like 12 months apart.... I wish there was a way of finding out the world record. Or at least the "cafemom record". That would be a reality show I'd watch. 2 screaming babies, 1 of which is mobile...

  • My mom had a friend years ago who went to her six week check up and was pregnant again. Her babies were literally less than a year apart. That is the closest I've ever heard of people having babies.

  • Not exactly the scenario you are asking for, but my youngest two were born one minute apart!

  • There is one mom on here that had one then found out the next was due on his b-day, but, she had her at 25 weeks. So, they are less than 9 months apart. They are like 6 months apart.

  • My DH and his little sister are VERY close. They were born within the same calendar year. On my SIL's next birthday, she'll be 26 - same as my husband. But that's not for very long.

  • I have 5 children & there is is 3 1/2 years between the 1st and the 5th & there are no multiples. My 1st 2 are 10 mos. and 12 days apart, my 2nd and 3rd are 11 mos. & 8 days apart, my 3rd & 4th are 8 days shy of being 11 mos. apart & my 4th & 5th are 9 1/2 mos. apart (#5 was due the day #4 would have turned 11 mos. but I was in a car accident and went in to early labor & had #5 1 1/2 mos. early). They were born 1/5/00, 11/17/00, 10/25/01, 9/17/02 and 7/5/03. We had them close together intentionally. I have a sister who is 10 mos. and 7 days older & a brother who is 11 mos. & 4 days younger (my mother had 7 children in 5 1/2 years w/no multiples) and my husband has a brother who is 10 mos. & 27 days older and a brother who is 10 mos. & 3 days younger (his mother had 4 in 3 years). We both liked having oru siblings close together so we chose to do so with our own. BTW, I was not a young mom, I was 32 when my 1st child was born.
