My first 2 are almost exactly 2 years apart. My 2nd and 3rd are almost exactly 3years apart. I like the gaps it's not too much if an age difference but they're not too close either

Mine are 4 yrs apart. My youngest is only 2.5 weeks old but it's been such an easy transition from one to two children with my oldest being so independent, understanding, and helpful :)

The age gaps are 1 year, 1 1/2 years, 3 years, and 2 1/2 years. The older the kids get the better I like the bigger gaps. The kids who have more space between them get along better than the ones that are close in age. And it feels like when they are close in age they get lumped together more often, and it is harder to have age appropriate rules. The older end up being held back and the younger push forward, to meet in the middle. That isn't the case with a two year (or more) age difference.

I don't know if there's a best. Different things work better for different families. My first 2 are 3.5 yrs apart. The second and third are almost exactly 3 years. And the third and the new baby will be 2 years and 8 months. And its all working fine so far. So whatever works for you I think.

My boys are about 2 1/2 years apart and it's perfect. They have enough in common to play and relate but far enough apart to not be too chaotic.

Me and my sister are 8 years apart.... Yea that didn't go well.
