My son is 13 months old, birthday Jan. 2nd, and I am itching to give him a sibling! My husband would prefer to wait longer, yet I think that once he is able to get his needs met using words (instead of whining and his newly begun tantrums), it will be a good time. I feel, though, that if I were to get pregnant now, my son will have developed these skills by the time the baby is born. I read that OBGYNs suggest waiting to get pregnant 18 months between each birth, for the healthiest next pregnancy. If you have two or more children, at what age should my son be when his sibling is born? Keep in mind, if I were to get pregnant now, he would be roughly 22 months old. So, 22 months and up for having a sibling, when is the best age? I would prefer to keep them 3 years or less a part. But please give me your input, whether your children are 2, 5, or 10 years apart! Thanks, Moms!
