Age gaps

My daughter is 2 and I was wondering what people think is a good age gap between siblings? I really want another baby now but it doesn't seem to be happening for me yet even though it happened straight away last time! Any advice please?

I agre with Kendel. I have 4 kids 5, 3, 18 months and 9 weeks. They are all very different and all get along in there own way. I think there relationships with each other generates from the relationship that you have with you partner and yours with the kids. Also underGstand that they will love each other dearly but will also clobber each other over the head that is inevidable.
Good luck with falling pregnant.

Thanks for your opinions ladies:) I hope I get pregnant soon but not because of a good age gap, just because I love babies and i would love to give my daughter a sibling to play, learn and grow with. I want a big family some day:)

there is no such thing as a "Good Age Gap" if you want another child go for it but if it dosent happen oh well ... you and i are in the same boat ... i wanted a 2 year age gap ... what i thought was a "Good Age Gap".... and i got pregnant when my lil on was 14 months old then at 3 months pregnant i miscarried the baby ... it was devistating for me ... but what that tought me was that children are a blessing no matter when (or if) they come! Love the one you have and any others that come no matter when they come! Good Luck !

well i dont know about a 'good ' gap i think it's more going to depend on each kids personalities... my kids are 5 years and 11 days apart * took 2 and half years to get pg with my oldest and over 4 years with the second* and despite the gap they get along great my son is very protective of 'his baby' and she's typically referred too as 'bubbies baby' lol
