  • I think that varies with families. we think 2 -3 years is a good space. But it could be different for a different family.

  • Me and my SO were just discussing this. We decided that we want to have the next one ASAP but we need to be at a certain point in our lives...so ASAP may be in a few years for us.

    But I like the age range of 2-3years apart, that's what I would do if I could.

  • I think it varies! My first 2 are 16 months apart and are great playmates together but they also fight constantly. #3 came along 3 years after #2 and that has been ok except I feel she may be left out because of the odd number and the age gap.
