1 and 2 are 14months apart to the day.

2 and this next baby will be 24 months apart-almost exactly.

Re: How far apart are you children?

Tirza and Asha are 2 years 4 months apart, had 2 losses between them

Asha and Nadia are 12.5months apart

That makes Tirza and Nadia 3 years 5months apart.

If I could control everything I'd have all my kids a year apart.

Re: How far apart are you children?

I only have one for now, and honestly think I'd have been tickled to have 2 9 months apart. lol I wanted to get pregnant immediately, but DH is making us wait at least 2 years.

On the other hand, I am almost 21, I have a 5 year old sister, and a 3 year old sister (both are halves). lol How's that for spacing?

Re: How far apart are you children?

Mine are 3 years and 2 months apart. I was definitely not ready yet at the time to space them at 2 years, and I thought 3 years would work better. It has been good and bad. I think I've forgotten a lot about babies, even in 3 years, but I am glad I had the time for DD at first, KWIM? I think I'd probably try for 3 years again if we have more.

Mine are 21 months apart. I love it! It was very hard in the beginning for me, but now it is going wonderfully!

Re: How far apart are you children?

Ok, Ok, another I can answer, since we are D O N E having babies...lol

Mine are :
Michael-11yrs in July
Christopher-5 1/2yrs
Thomas-almost 2 1/2 yrs
Andrew-4 1/2mths

The 5 1/2 yrs b/t the 2 oldest is really cool b/c you can start one in K and then you have all day long to bond with the baby!

The 3yr apart, was kind of survivable due of pre-k...same reason as above.

.....the 2yrs apart I dont think I would survive if I didnt have the oldest one to help....

I recomend 3-5yrs.....for sanity reasons.... The only reason that Thomas & Andrew are so close together is b/c I had a cancer scare and once cleared wanted to hurry and pop the last one out b/c they told me I couldnt ............but I dont recomend it....

+ your body has to HEAL on the inside b/t babies, and you have to have time to lose the wieght from the last b/f having the next or IT WILL NEVER COME OFF . . . .

I always hated the idea of "stair step kids" (no offense to anyone here) it just seems like there is no planning, just surprises from lack of contraception. + give the current youngest time to be the youngest, its very important... I see tooooo many moms telling their 2yr olds or younger "no no, he can do it b/c he's the baby" "or let him have it he is just a baby"...when they are still babies themselves..........and expecting them to act older than they are...

I really enjoy being able to spend the needed time each needs for thier age range- harder with the 2 youngest ones- older kids dont need/want mom/dad as much and younger ones need mom/dad almost all the time...

+ the younger they are, the less understanding they have- hense- chasing 2+ kids in opposite directions- see, the 5yr old and 11 yr old are now old enough to know better, not so w/ the "littles"....thank god for much older sibs...

Re: How far apart are you children?

Beau and Niko are 2 yrs, 8 months apart and Niko and Konstantine are 1 month shy of being 3 yrs apart. I would have liked them a little closer but I am just happy to have them. We would like to have another but not sure when.
