  • I think it's different for everyone. Mine are 4 years apart. I would liked to have had them closer, but we were just lucky to finally have an 2nd child.

  • I think its a personal choice for everyone. What is important to you? Do you want to have your babies playing together? Do you want 2 kids in diapers? Do you want time to enjoy each one specially?
    For me, I want my kids to be at least 4 years apart. I want my oldest in preschool/kindergarden when I have baby #2. I want at least a few hours a day where I can spend alone, bonding time with the new baby. And I want baby #1 to understand what having a sister/brother means. I dont care that they wont be able to play together really. I know that is important to some. I know how I want my family, and as long as you are happy with it, its perfect to you.
