  • Whatever you are emotionally & financially ready for. Many of my friends have children very close in age, 1 to 2 years apart maximum.

  • What are your kids ages now and how old are you? I didnt have mine good at all because of life and it was never planed. So i think if i had planed it would of been 3yr. apart is good. I think its all up to how your life is going for you and your husband right now.

  • Doctors recommend at least 2 years apart. Other than that, like EdwinsMommy said, whenever you are emotionally and financially ready, go for it.

  • Mine are almost exactly three years apart and we love it! We did NOT plan it that way, it just worked out that we were ready for another around that time. I like it because by the time the baby comes, the older is a little more independent so where I was nursing, the older child could play or entertain him/herself and I could tend to the baby.I'm glad it worked out this way!
