My baby is 4 months old right now. I'm seriously thinking about having another one. I really want my kids to be close in age so they can grow together. My brother and I are 14 months apart. We are much closer than we are to my sister (who is 5 years older) I know it'll be a challenge, but what about the mom's that have twins?? My thought is: If they can do it, so can I.

I am struggling with the same question. On one hand, I have heard it is hard to have two in diapers at the same time, but I know there is something to be said for having them close together and then having it all over with after a few years. I guess it just depends on what is important to you, and like everything else, it's a balancing act.

honestly i would have prefered to have 2 1/2 to 3 years between. instead i get: 20 months between child 1 and child 2, 11 years between child 2 and child 3, and child 3 will JUST be 2 on august 11 and #4 is due on august 24th (so just barely over 2 years separating them). It's a little crazy having 2 toddlers, but it has its fun days. and this time around i have older kids to help.

My LO is 17 months now, and we are about to start trying for another, and hope to be pregnant by his 2nd birthday. that way there should be about 2 and half years between them. I was ready to start trying again when he was about 4 months old lol, but decided it was best to just enjoy him 1st, and have fun getting on the floor helping him to learn to crawl, walk, etc. He has now achieved all of this so has had a lot of quality time with me at such a precious age xx

I want another baby, but unfortunaly it is the right time (I am in college and money is tight), so unfortunatly you need to make sure you are financialy ready as well as you want another one. Its not always easy being an adult, but ultimatly you and your spouse need to decide together!

I knew on my oldest daughters first birthday that we had to do something that miraculous again! Our second daughter was born 10 months later. They are now about to turn 20 and 22 and are still best friends. I never had to deal with the sibling rivalry. They were always each others biggest cheerleader, and still are. I've always felt that 18 months apart would have been perfect but maybe because they were 2 school years apart it made a difference that would not have happened if they had only been one grade apart. All I know for sure is I was Blessed with 2 girls at 22 months apart.

I have been wondering this as well. My son will be a year old June 13. My thing is,while half of me *wants* to have another baby, the other half is not sure I'm ready yet. I still feel like I'm adjusting to my one child, and having two seems soooo much more daunting than one. We were thinking of trying again when our son is around 18 months. But then I keep thinking, will I really be any more ready 9 months from now? While some of the baby related things will get easier as he gets older, there will still be more challenges when he's in the toddler stage too, just different ones. And if its not going to get any easier then why wait? Lol I dunno, those are just my rambling thoughts on the subject.

my kids are 18 months and 6 days apart. It is rough to have 2 in diapers but my son loves his little sister and i think they are a good age difference.

When both you and your partner feel it's time. Our Son turned one beginning of April and we've started trying again.
