My daughter was 6 months old *barely* when I fell pregnant with my son, there is 13 months between them and I couldn't love it more if I tried. It had its tough times but they nap together, they do everything together and adore each other. It's incredible watching them grow together
This is what I want! But only God knows and we’ll just go with it!
I had two within a year! One jan 2010 one December 2010! Irish twins they are called, they are now 10,11 and so close and hopefully will be throughout their lives! X
Mine are 13 months apart it took 6 months to get pregnant after having my first. I was not using in protection and now have my two under two. It’s ALOT of fun! My baby watches her big brother and he is SO good with her. Also I have the baby cuddles all over again. Lol 😂
I'm planning to wait 3/4 years, mainly because I want to just soak up all the time I have with my first, then when they are at pre-school/school I'll have similar 1 on 1 time with new baby☺ that's just the way my mind works. At the same time adore seeing siblings that are only a year apart and thinj they'll be such good friends🥲x
We have a three year gap. Lost one in the middle. Ours play well and fight in equal measure though I’m not sure that has anything to do with the age gap. I’m happy with where we are. No matter what the gap it will work out. Good luck!
My kids are 16 months apart. There’s no rule book, you just have to decide what works for you.
My daughter is 2 in a couple of weeks and I'm due in August so will have a 2 and a half year age gap. That's what we wanted, didn't want 2 under 2 or younger but didn't want bigger than a 3 year age gap. I wanted to give my body time to heal between pregnancies, hormones to get back to normal as possible. And to enjoy my daughter being little. It's personal preference.
My youngest two are 19 months apart and are the best of friends
My son was almost 2 when I fell pregnant with my second. He will be 2.5 years old and I’m due in a few weeks. I like this age gap because I will have the summer with both babies and then my oldest will start nursery in September for a couple of days a week which will help me have some one on one time with my youngest.
My daugther is 7 months and I’m 16 weeks pregnant. Baby 2 is due 2weeks after first birthday .
My three youngest are a year apart. It works for me
I’m pregnant with my second, due in September and my daughter will be 1 next week. I feel like it’s close but not too close!
I had my first son FEB 2020 and my second DEC 2020! It’s hard but worth it
Thank you!! I admire people like you too ! It’s hard and some days i need a boost but i have to tell myself it’s so worth it !
I admire you! I have two boys 360 days apart. February 2019 and January 2020. Couldn’t be happier but it’s hard! You go momma! 💞
Had my first Jan 2019, second March 2020 and now pregnant with my third due August lmao crazy
Are you breastfeeding??? Just because it may be more tough to conceive right away while breastfeeding. I conceived when my son was 10 months but ended up miscarrying and now am 21 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby. My boys will be almost 2 years apart.
@Monét Breastfeeding can definitely affect your ability to get pregnant. When breastfeeding it is common not to get your period. I never got one until I stopped breastfeeding at 8 months. Using breastfeeding as a contraceptive is called Lactation Amenorrhea Method. Although it is not totally reliable against pregnancy as you have to take a few other factors into account it is a scientifically proven form of contraceptive! You can get pregnant while breastfeeding however it is also very common not to be able to!
Breastfeeding does not affect your ability to become pregnant. It does affect your ability to produce milk once your colostrum starts producing, so most women notice the milk drying up and turning back to colostrum.

They recommend 12 months minimum, but 18 months being ideal. Especially if you didn’t deliver vaginally. Give your body time to heal.
My stepson is 5 and my baby is 6 months. My stepson is so helpful and great with him , no jealousy issues at all because he is much older. However, I think I will plan on having another when my baby is around 2 or 3
I have a 1 year old (birthday is end of January) and I’m due at the end of February with my second 😂 so they will be 13 months apart. I’ve heard it’s hard in the beginning but that it’s worth it. Best of luck to you!
There's 14 months between my eldest and my middle child (3 in March and 2 in may) then there's 19 months between my middle and my youngest (obviously my middle is 2 in may and I have a 2 week old baby)
My friend got pregnant when her first was 3 months old (unplanned). But her girls are super close.
I had my son in September 2019 and I’m now expecting baby number two in July 2021 so there will be 22 months apart!
18 months between mine, In the early stages youngest is 3 months and it is hard- a good support network will help you through. We wanted a close age gap but was surprised they have ended up this close. Can already see a close bond blossoming between them though and it warms my heart.
I found out I was pregnant a month after my first turnt one... so by the time was born there was a 22month gap... I have two girls and baby just slotted in and they are so close and it so much easier to adjust to than a large gap x
Only you can really decide that i suppose lol 🤷♀️ mine are all 6yrs apart, wasnt planned that way just happened x
I'm currently pregnant with my second and I'll have both birthdays in June.. a two year old and a newborn if dates are correct 2 years 10 days apart 😳
I had my little boy in may 2019 and fell pregnant June 2020 just under two years between then when she arrives :)
My son is 11 months now and I’m 14 weeks pregnant with number two. Feeling anxious about it, and I’m sure it will be hard at times, but I do hope they will get along great!
We started trying for our second after my first turned 1. Got pregnant a few months later. They are exactly 2 years and 2 weeks apart. I wish we waited a little bit longer honestly but it’s a good gap for us. I’m now pregnant with our surprise #3 baby and this one will be born when my other two are 5 and 3
My older two are 16 months apart my middle and youngest are 18 months apart!
I got pregnant with my twins when my son was 6 months, ideally I would have waited until he was atleast one. It’s a lot on your body but they all get along great now

I had my first four in 6 years, around 18 months between them. We are now pregnant with baby 5 and there’s a 5 1/2 year gap between her and my youngest. It was hard work but I think they have a great age gap and they still do lots together now. I was never told to wait or anything like that. Do what is best for you and your family ❤️
I had my second 18 months after my first. Theyre a great age gap. We waited 3 years to try again. My oldest is 5, youngest will be 4 in July and I am 21 weeks with our third. We had a hard road conceiving this one after two losses this year. So our hope is after this baby, we have one more healthy baby about 15-18 months apart
My little boy was about 7 months When we started trying again. I found out I was pregnant a couple of weeks after his first birthday so there will be just over 20 months between them. Do what’s right for your family but do bare in mind that they recommend at least 12-18m between pregnancies as there is an increased risk of complications if there’s a short gap between (but lots of people do have them closer together and are completely fine so do what you feel is right for you)
I had my boys 12 months apart (now 2 and 3) and I had a little girl 3 weeks ago. I don't think there's such as a "perfect" age gap, it's just whatever is right for you x
I would definitely consult your OB, but I unexpectedly got pregnant back to back and am so thankful it happened how it did. I had my first February 2019 and found out I was pregnant again May 2019. I had two boys under 1 for a few days 😂
I know people with kids 9 months apart! #2 came early so it closed the gap! Talk to your doc and do what’s best for you and your family!
My partner and I want five kids. Currently pregnant with first. Due in June. Hoping to start trying again 6 months after max.
That’s what we’re thinking, I want 4! I at least want to be pregnant by her 1st bday, hoping to start trying this summer
I'm also currently 24 weeks pregnant. So we have 11yr old, 10yr old, 8yr old, almost 3yr old, almost 2yr old and will have a new born lol
