My daughter is 8 months old and we are trying to decide when to have a second baby. I was just wondering how far apart everyones kids are and if you had it to do over would you change it?

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!!

Hello!

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.
