How spaced out are you children?

I have a 5 month old and my husband and I are debating on when we will try for our next. I am 25 (26 in Dec) and my husband is 33 (34 in Feb). I think our max number of children is 4 and my husband doesn't want any more children once he reaches 40. So we have been discussing when we will try for our next.

  • Myoldest is 3 years and 1/2 a month older than our youngest. I like the spacee difference sometimes, but other times i wish we would have had our children closer in age.

  • My first and second chill are 1 yr (and a week) apart.
    At first it was stressful but now they are the best of friends and play together all the time :)
    I would recommend at least 1.5 yrs apart..just so that #1 is walking and sleeping and eating well before you are hit with a newborn.
