I have an 11 month old daughter, and I've wanted another baby since she was 3 months old. She loves other babies and doesn't get jealous when I hold or play with other babies/children. She's great and loves to play with her dolly baby! What age gap worked with your kids and what advice could you give about having kids far apart (no more than 5 years) and close together (they would be a minimum of 21 months apart)

I have 2 boys and they are 21 months apart.They do pretty good together for the most part but sometimes my older one gets a bit jealous and wants to be the "baby".My brother and I are 2 yrs apart so I wanted to have my kids close together too since me and my brother have a really close relationship.

Thank you! I thought that they would get along when they were closer in age. We want 6 chldren, so we wanted to know what kind of gap would be best :)

I have 4 kids....My oldest is 10 then 4 1/2 years later I had my second, after my second daughter my last 3 kids were all 20 months apart. It is so much easier for me to work with my last three and they get a long better then my oldest daughter does with any of her siblings. Hope that helps.
