    I am a huge planner but of course, pregnancy and life doesn't fall to it.
    I feel 2-3 years is best as they can grow and learn from the siblings. I am also basing it on that most 3 years I come in contact with are pretty aware of surroundings and most if not all have asked their parents for a sibling.
    My brother that I grew up with and I are about 5 years apart and I NEVER felt a huge relationship with him, I am unsure if this is due to other factors like him being a half brother or another reason I will not go into.

    Ideally, we wanted our children to be really close together, about 1.5 years apart, but as things happened we weren't able to conceive as early as we would have liked to, and will end up having a nearly exactly 2 year age gap, which I think is great. We will have at least one more after this baby, and to me, the closer in age, the better! I hope to be done having children before I'm 30.

    When I get older and have children, if I had two kids then I’d like them to be 4/5 years apart but if I had a third then the age gap from the second to third would probably be 2/3 years.

    I personally don’t think age gaps determine if kids will be closer or further apart, theres 11 years between me and my sister and we’re super close.

    I don't think there's any such thing as too close or too far apart. Sisters are sisters and brothers are brothers. Family is family.

    I forgot about this thread!

    We were originally thinking about going for a 3/4 year gap, but instead decided to start trying a few months ago. No luck yet, but if I get pregnant within the next few months there will be about about a two year gap which I think will be nice.
