Age gap

Mommas with two or more kids what’s the age gap between your kids and what’s the pros and cons of having them that far apart / close together?

I have a son and daughter. They are 14 and a half years apart. My son will be 16 in November and my daughter will be 2 in December. Even though I don't have my son I love having them this far apart. It's fun to watch them together when I go see my son.

Mine are 363 days apart. At first it was hard because they were and are my only babies so I went from having one I loved so much to a second one and I didn’t know how I would feel emotionally. I feel in love with both instantly. Sleeping was an issue at first as well. I didn’t have my first on a good sleep schedule so had to do and learn that right away with both. Overall pros of them this close together: saved money because I had everything, they are close, love each other, I don’t have to “start over”. Cons: time, money, spreading yourself too thin until you get the hang of things, sleep deprived, body not getting a break between pregnancies. That’s all I can think of right now.

There is 2 years between my daughter and son. At first it was a bit hard but now it’s so easy! They entertain eachother and have the best little friendship. We are thinking of baby 3 but ideally would like 2.5 year gap this time as those 6 months do make it slightly easier
