Is there a good age your child should hit before you try for another baby?

I know so many people that had a baby around the same time as me. Half of them are already pregnant again. My son is only eight months old. He is testing me enough my himself. I can't imagine getting ready for another child. I plan to wait until my son is 3. I'm hoping by that age he will be excited about a little brother or sister. What do you think?

yes, it's need to have an age gap between you children..my daughter is now almost 3, but i can't tell when i can have another child coz i'm a single mom and don't know when i will be married and have another children again..but for me, it's better to have an age gap like 2-3yrs gap so that you can have a rest for your body, then you will have a quality time for each of your children..

Yes, I think it is important for each child to get the same attention. Thanks

i have two children i got pregnant with my second one about 7 months after i had the first one sometimes i wish i had waited to have my second but it doesn't really matter my oldest is going to be turning 2 in 3 months and my youngest is 5 months old i think that whenever you feel comfortable to have your second child you should there are ups and downs to both sides and right now i think that my kids have time to grow together they will be in high school together and so on its actually a good thing because we found out when i was 5 months pregnant with my son that he would have a physical disability and would need someone that he could familiarize himself with whenever he gets into a bad situation with people good luck with everything ^_^

Well, like all children he may or may not. You just have to talk to him when he reaches that age. Anyway, off subject. I think that it's a pretty good idea. You'll have enough space between your children to know what to expect at that age.

The good decision you have taken till your sons attainment of three years . Herein in india everybody is following this norms as per government also insists. It is good for baby and mother also . I also planned and c hildrens grown as adult. To enjoy the life like this proper planning by us is compulsory for parenting our child.
