Do you think they are being selfish?

Moms that plan their kids to be a year apart...so that they can finish having kids early, being selfish? I feel like (now this is just my opinion) moms don't realize that they are not letting that first child have "their time" before you are already planning another one who is soon gonna take all your attention from them. I feel like that's is just sad. But like I said that's just my opinion. What's yours??

I sorta agree. I have a friend that wants that too and she's on PA, so it's really stupid. I couldn't handle it because my 10 month old is a handful enough.

I don't really care what others do, but my son is almost 5 with downs and I don't want another until he's 7-8-9

Everyone feels different. What ever works for you I guess. I prefer them spaced further apart myself.

What is "right" or ideal is different for everyone. Most people I know who have kids close in age didn't do it to finish having kids early though.

our kids are 23 months a part and they are close enough in age that at times it's a pain....There are times that I wish we would have waited to have our second child.

I don't necessarily think it's selfish I just don't really get people who "plan" their children with time and dates in mind  I'm a live and let live ; let nature take it's course type of person.
