Mammas..How far apart are you babies?

I was just wondering how far apart your babies are and what you think is a good age gap!

  • Mine are 18, 11, 9 and 5 months. Most people think the closer the better, but I find that the closer in age, the more they fight.

  • Mine are 51/2 years apart. I seemed to be a good age gap at first( when theuy where really young. But as they graduated and became adults it was not fun. One became an adult and then I had to wait 51/2 mor years for the next one to leave the nest.
    I think 11/2 to 3 years apart is better.

  • My two boys are 23 months and 4 days apart :) I was aiming for 3 years apart, but G-D had other plans.

    I think it's a good age gap. The closest I'd want my kids is 18 months, the furthest would be 4 years.

  • 3 weeks short of 2 years, and I think it is a little too close, they are 3 and 5 and I feel like all I do is break up fights.
