I have two children. Though we were only planning to have one due to my health conditions during pregancy. Our little girl was a VERY big suprise. My childre are 5 years almost to the day apart. Son was born August 12th, 2002, and daugter was born August 11th, 2007. The age gap, caused some issues but not alot. More on our part, because we had to go threw sleepless nights again, diapers, all that good stuff. But for the kids, they get along great. Big brother is very protective of his little sister, though that banter back and forth sometimes, it's worked out pretty good. I got to spend alot of time with my son, and now that he's in school I have good alone time with our little girl as well. When he's home at the end of his school day, we have together time. My sister had two children who are only 15 months apart and she struggled so bad. I'm used to alot of age gaps in my family though. My oldest sister and I are 24 years difference in age. She's 53, and I am 29. My oldest brother and I are 22 years difference in age, my other sister and I are 19 years different in age, another brother and I are 16 years difference, and my last sister and I are only 6 years difference. I wouldn't recommend that, lol. My older siblings and I don't even feel like siblings, because they are so much older than I am.

I have three children. My baby girl is 4 months old. My toddler son is 29 months old. My teenage son is 14 years old. I suggest that two to three years is the ideal gap between children. However knowing when a pregnancy will happen can be challenging. If a couple are trying to get the lady pregnant it might happen straight away or it might take months or even years. I know a lady that has just become pregnant and she was trying for two years.

I have a son now, who is only 7 months old. I am thinking the age gap which is 3 years should be quite nice. As the elder kid has already grown up and he can understand lots of things, then he will be able to take care of the younger brother or sister and also won't be jealous of the younger baby. Also when the age gap is not too big, then they can grow up together and always have fun together. That's why I always think about 3 years is a good gap. ^_^

I am 28 and my husband is 31. We have a three year old (11/06) and a 7 month old (3/09). I like having a smaller gap between the two of them. I think they are going to have a lot in common with this age difference. I don't think we are going to have another one but that decision is not final. If it was not for money, I would have eight kids :)

There is 2 years and 27 days between my girls, they are 5 and 3 now was a wonderful age gap for us, we are planning on having another baby but not until my youngest is 4.5-5 years partyly due to us getting married next year and i dont want to be pregnant while getting married and partly due to my ill health it will be easier to go to all my appointments while pregnant which i require to moniter my condition and that it isnt affecting baby while my children are in school to save having to take them. the age gap suited us might not suit others.
