Alright- I have a 5 month old and I'm already thinking about having another one in the next year. What do you think- am I crazily going to bite off more than I can chew?

  • I wanted more space between mine (3 years) so I could really enjoy each one as an infant. But plenty of moms like them closer. It really depends on what you can handle. Remember too that each child is different so if this is your first and an easy child, it doesn't mean the next wouldn't have colic, etc. Talk it over with hubby.....what does he want? Good luck!!

  • My sister is 15 months older than me and I am 15 monts older than my brother. My mom didn't plan it this way, but it wasn't so bad growing up this way. My mom said that at least she didn't have kids in diapers forever.
