  • Whatever is right for your family is right. Whatever the age spread, you make it work. Figure out if you want two in diapers, wait until the oldest is in school for #2, etc. Because of life, our kids will be about 6 years apart: we had planned on 2 1/2, but life had other ideas.

  • I was hoping for about 2 years apart, but I really wanted to lose weight before getting pregnant now my daughter is two and we are just now going to start TTC. But I really think she will deal with having a baby sibling better at 3, than she would if we had one now.

  • My kids are just about 2 and a half years apart. I wanted them closer in age (I thought) But really love the difference. It was an easier transition because he was more independant.

  • My boys are just under two years apart because my youngest was pre-mature. @ years is good cause they are right at the same level to still have a little in common. But my brother and I are 4 years apart and we've always had a great relationship. I would say between 2 and 4.

  • mine are 19 months to the day. boy 1st, girl 2nd. If we could do it again we'd love them 2-3 mos closer. It was lovely, a LOT like twins since boys are slower, girls mature and do things faster. They potty trained together and other such things.
