Do you have kids that are less than 2 years apart? Do you regret having them that close? How old are they now?

My kids are just over 2 years apart, by one month and one day lol. I like having them this close together, especially since we do not plan on having any more children. My oldest is 2 (turning 3 in April) and my youngest is 8 months.

my last 2 are 17 months apart and while the last wasnt planned I am glad he is here and we have had a great time with them being closer in age. They are 1 grade apart and have a similar group of friends. They are now 13 and 14 older will be 15 next week. One of my SS has kids 11 months apart. We were older having our kids so we needed to git r done and SS and wife were too young not using and control.

My girls are 16 months apart. They are 3 and 4 now. I love that they are close in age. Don't get me wrong, two in diapers and not sleeping through the night at the same time was hard, but now it's just a distant memory haha. They play so well together and will graduate one after the other. I enjoy it now, but I'm sure the teen years will be a whole other story haha.

Mine are April 25th and May 24th. Boy and a girl. I'm sure I've got a lot of fights ahead of me.

My olest son was 15 months old when we had the twins.  (they were 11 weeks early) It was rough, but it is nice in a way, they always have someone to play with. They are 6,5 and 5 now.

My cousin barely waited till she was 6 weeks to start trying for another kid. She got pregnant when her oldest was 7 months. She told me I should have another right away, so I can potty train them at the same time.....like she did....because somehow its better. I don't think so. I think it put a lot of stress on her marriage, because she is now divorced, and he kids fight ALL the time. I have brothers, and I fought with the one 2 years older than me all the time, and the ones that were 5 and 9 years older than me, I get along with great, and they helped raise me. I think 4 years apart is a good spacing because then they'll start going to school, and you can give the second a lot of attention. Having them close together like she did, neither of her kids got her individual attention for long enough.
