  • my first child is 8years older then my second but thats because i was young when i had my first child and i wasnt ready to have another one right away due to trying to finish school and get a good job and plus do things the "right way" lol. But my second child who is 20months now will be a big brother himself in just 3months. so my second and thrid child will be 2years apart.

  • my first child was 16 months old when we got pregnant with number two. she was 26 months when baby number two was born. it was hard at first for her, she didn't like her sister at all. but now that they are 4 and 2, they love eachother.

  • He was almost a year when we decided to start trying. I wanted them about 2 years apart, and they ended up being a couple months shy of that. It worked for us, and still does 20 months later. :)

  • When my first was 8 months old we started trying. They were 17 months a part. Around the same time we started trying for our third. Our second and third wound up being 19 months a part. We waited about 3 years to start trying for out 4 so they will be 3 1/2 years a part.

  • We never decided anything. When my oldest was 7 months old I found out I was already pregnant. They are 15 months apart and I wouldn't want it any other way (they are now 10 and 9 and I also have an 8yo, 4yo and a 5mo).
