Best age gap between siblings
My daughter will be 2 months in July, my boyfriend and me want to start TTC when she turns 11-13 months so we will have 2 children young and then have third when we turn 30-33(we will see, of course).
I have just talked to my doc and she says 9 months is the smallest waiting period. I know sometimes you might get pregnant within a year or can't conceive for years but I was just wondering, if everything goes fine with health and BC, what is the best gap between siblings?
My brother and I are 18 years apart(he is older) and I can't even say it is that good. He was more of a third parent to me as he treated me as his child not sister. He was quite mature, not like your playmate and thus our parents never compared us. Of course he wasn't as strict as mom and dad and we had our own games, secrets but he got married when I was ten and we never were very close since then. I love my bro much and I don't have any other siblings but, honestly, I wish I had a big friend in my family near my age.
So could we discuss here age gaps between siblings we know so to find out all pros and cons? I guess it was done on NB before but it's such an interesting topic anyway, isn't it? ;)
