  • My children will be 13 months apart. However, we'd originally been thinking that spacing them 1 1/2-2 years apart was ideal for us.

  • Well my older son was a little more than 2 1/2 when we got pregnant with our 2nd. So my two boys are 3 1/2 years apart. For me it was a good age difference but everyone is different!:D

  • I think *the* most common is about 2 years apart and what I see a majority of people doing.

    Personally though, my first two are 13 months and 2 weeks apart. I'm due with our third and last child (having a sterilization after this baby) and the baby will be 22 months younger than my 17 month old, and 2 years, and 11 months younger than my oldest. Shockingly enough, 2 of the three were planned. :)

  • following natural parenting and ecological breastfeeding (gods plan for natural child spacing) children should be spaced around three years apart

  • 3 yrs apart is good.

  • I wanted to get pregnant when my son was about 18 months but he is now going on 2 1/2 and I am having a hard time conceiving so it is when and if God chooses to bles me with another.
    But we have been trying since my son was a 1 1/2.
