I have 4 babies and they are 5 year and 3 years and 2 years and 1 year old. They are 17 months about and 10 months apart and 19 months apart. it was great having them close togather for me cause now they are growing up togather and i am done have kids so they all have each other and will have each other all threw school and no i would not change anything i love having them close togather.

My children are 8 years apart. I know, big difference. This was not intentional. No I would not do it over. My son had been wanting a sibling for the longest. So obviously his prayers were answered. He is a HUGE!!! HUGE!!! help with her. He is old enough to be content when I have to give her most of my attention. When I am in the middle of changing a poopy and realize the wipes are in the nursery, he loves to go run and get something to help. Truly a blessing.

My 2 boys are 12 years apart, my oldest is 13 & my youngest is almost 9 months. My hubby & I were pretty young when we had our oldest & when I hit 30 I started to hear my clock tick (very loudly!) so we decided to have another. I actually love having them that far apart & it works for us!!

My first 2 are 11 years apart - obviously not ideal, but I was only 17 when I had my oldest. My middle child will be 3 in March and my youngest is 6 months old. This has been a great age gap for our family. Our daughter loves her baby brother! Having 2 in diapers isn't a always ideal, but I didn't want to wait longer. Our daughter is potty- training now, so it's not too bad. I felt like having one walking was more important than the diaper situation, lol!
Best of luck!

We have a 4 year old daughter and a 10 month old son. The difference in age is perfect for our family: we don't have 2 kids in diapers, our daughter goes to pre-k during the day so her brother gets his alone time with mommy like she did, Savannah loves to be a big sister and likes to help with her baby brother whether it's bringing mommy diapers or occupying him while I cook dinner. And he is just crazy about his sister. I would do it again like this.
