Re: Under 2 years apart?

My first 2 are 13 months apart, and I won't lie, that was a rough 11 months of 2 under 2. But after that first year, everything got much easier than if we had a bigger gapand I would happily do it again, though personally wouldn't suggest that it is for everyone because that first year was the hardest year of my life.

Our 3rd is 27 months younger and it's been super easy. I worried she wouldn't bond as well with her brothers since they are so close, but that hasn't been the case at all.

Our next will be at least 25 months apart (currently ttc) I would have preceded closer to 18 months but it didn't happen.

We have had zero jealousy issues, the "older baby " has always loved and been excited for the new baby.

We read books play on the floor or get out special toys the first few weeks of nursing, after that they don't really care and just do their own thing
