My son was born in September of 2010 and my daughter was born in January 2013. There is a little more than 2 years between them and so far it's been a great transition for my little boy. He doesn't always understand being gentle or why the baby gets so much of our attention now, but he has adjusted very well.

 My first two are 16 months apart, and best friends.  My youngest is 5 years younger than the oldest and 4 years younger than the middle.

My older 2 are 16 months apart. My oldest was 4 when my third was born and my second was about 2 years 9 month when my third was born.

Honestly you want them less then 2 years or more then 3. If they are younger they adapt better and your kids will be best friends(and worst enemies lol.) If they are older you can explain things so they will understand more and they can help more.

They say the best ages are 2 or 5 because of the independent stages. But it really depends on you and you family.

My oldest was 5 yrs 2mths when our second daughter was born. I love the age gap and will wait atleast 3-4 years before have our third! I figure I am young(25 now) and love being pregnant and having little ones around, why rush having all my kids i want and being done so soon.
