If you want to breastfeed your child and not need formula, at least a year.

If you don't care about breastfeeding your child, I suppose as soon as you feel like it, although back-to-back pregnancies are hard on the body.

there are risks between having babies too close together, and waiting too long:/

"Irish Twins" are 10 months apart, so it is biologically possible to get pregnant immediately.  Some women go back for their OB 6 week visit and find they're pregnant...

if you want to breastfeed and not go formula atleast a year. But its best to wait atleast 2 years since it takes the body 2 years to recover from one pregnancy. And back to back pregnancies increases your chances of prolapse.

With DS we got pregnant when DD was 3 months. We weren't actively trying but we were not preventing. His pregnancy was so HARD! I wouldnt change their age difference and how close they are but it was a tough pregnancy. BUT that being said only you know when you and your body is ready to try again!

We usually wait a year so that I can breastfeed for at least a year.

my grandma had babies 10 months apart and always warned me about doing that. She said it was so hard and tells me horror stories lol...I would wait at least a year for your body to heal a bit.

 I have children that are 17 months apart and I love it.  I would say give your body at least 6 months of rest before start trying.  GL

I would wait awhile. I got caught up in the honeymoon period after having my kids and you do get over it rather quickly LOL
