mine are about 3 years apart. there is 3 years 2 months to the day between my 1st 2 and 2 years and 7 months or so between my middle and my youngest. so they are just turned 6, almost 3 and 4 months. it works perfect for me. and i think it comes down to whats best for you and your kids

My twin sons are 6 1/2 years older than my daughter, and I love it. I have to say our sons were such a handful at 3 years old I think I would have gone crazy with a baby in the mix.

My 3 year old is super-helpful with her new baby brother.  That is a great age-difference in my opinion. :)

We have one in between though! ... My oldest and middle are 16 months apart, which isn't a bad age difference, just a little harder.

I have to say, 3 kids, 3 and under is a challenge!

 my two kids are 8 years apart am I LOVE it. IF I have anymore, then they will be 5+ years apart from my last.

My boys are 6 years apart. I think 4 years apart is a good age gap though.

well there are almost exactly four years between my dd1 and dd2 and almost exactly 5 years between dd2 and ds and i think it is a good age gap but hubs would like to have no more than 2 years gap between the rest of our kids

Between 1 and 2yrs for us, mostly because it's easier on us and we don't have to pack away ALL of the newborn/infant stuff lol. 2 years is also good because she will be able to help a little and understand what's going on.
