How close in age are your children?

Thought it would be interesting to hear from you all about how many months are between your children. Ours are 5, 3, 2, and 4 mon. - 22 mon. between 1st and 2nd, 17 mon. between 2nd and 3rd and 22 mon. between 3rd and 4th.

Re: How close in age are your children?

Ours are 11, almost 10, 8, almost 6, 4, almost 3 and due in Nov. The first two are 15 months apart, then 20 months between #2 and #3, 27 months between #3 and #4, 20 months between #4 and #5, and 17 months between #5 and #6. There will be 37 months between #6 and #7. (There was a miscarriage after #6, which would have been a spacing of 27 months again.) After the first one I have always been breastfeeding when I got pregnant with the next baby. All of them weaned themselves at some point during the pregnancy, except so far #6 shows no signs of weaning, but she only nurses right before nap and bedtime. We have never really been trying or preventing pregnancy, but I do chart my cycles, so I have a basic idea of when I'm ovulating. We trust that God will give us the family we are meant to have and that he will provide what we truly need. I have seen many examples of this over the years. It is an awesome life and we are very blessed!

Re: How close in age are your children?

Mine are 14, 12, 8, 3 and newborn. The spacing is 19 months, 3.5 years, 5 years, 3.5 years.

I really like the 3 year spacing. I like to be able to really focus and enjoy my baby before the next one comes along.
