How far apart are your first and second child?  Do you wish you would have had them closer together or father apart or was it perfect timing?

2 years and 10 months.  I wanted them closer, but it took us over a year to conceive our second.  I do like the age difference.

Mine are 19 months apart. My son turned 3 this year and my daughter will be 2 begining of the year.  it was hard when my daughter was a baby but now that my son is older he actually is helpful.

There are 18 minutes between our first and second children ;) they could have been a little closer, but they had minds of their own.

1 year and 1 week apart, definitely wish I had them farther apart.

Almost 5 years.

We wanted a gap large enough that we could really enjoy and devote everything to our first child.

It has worked out wonderfully.

I have a 6 year old & a baby on the way. Sometimes I wish they could have been closer together but the timing wasn't right. And I think it will be easier this way, I couldn't imagine having a newborn & chasing a toddler. My daughter is pretty self sufficient so if anything she will be helpful

They are 4.5 years apart, I sometimes wish they were closer together but for the most part I think it was perfect.
