I agree it is best to wait a year. It takes a while for your body to "go back" after having a baby. Your body went through constant changes for 9-10 months so it takes a while to heal and return. My sister has easier pregnancies than I did. She has 5 kids and the last two are 19 months apart. That wasn't ideal since it was her 4th and 5th, but she is a baby machine and she could handle it better than some. It depends on each person, what kind of pregnancy you had, and most important what kind of delivery you had.

it is best to wait for 3 years. after delivery mom loss up to 33% of calcium from her body. so it is suggested to have a 3 years gap if you had c-section. otherwise 2 years must. otherwise it effects on mom's health. take care of yourself.

My son is 7 months old and I am currently 15 weeks pregnant. It was a big surprise, but we are just as thrilled as we where with our first. I had a very easy pregnancy and delivery with my first born, and so far no problems with this one. Thank GOD:) I don't see anything wrong with having babies close together as long as you are prepared. I am excited about my children growing up together, I know they will always be close to each other. Me and my litlle brother are very close in age, and we have always had a special bond. I want the same for my babies.

I believe you should wait at least a year after a baby is born so that you could be able to get to know your child before you have another one.

I think that you should confront your doctor and see if your body is ready to handle another pregnancy. I am currently six months pregnant with my second child but have had several miscarriages and know that it is risky to try and get pregnant if your body can't handle it.
