    We chose a 22mth age gap but were aiming for 18-20. Other than the initial 6-8 weeks (mainly cos I had one in PICU for 2wks) its been pretty easy. Yes there are hard days but there are significantly more easy days.

    Dd1 still naps 2-3hrs everyday and dd2 sleeps during that time too. They both have similar day structures as well.

    I have 26 months between DD1 and DS. There is 29 months between DS and DD2. There is 4.5years between DD1 and DD2.

    I like both these age gaps, but I'm glad there is a child in between my oldest and youngest as they play well together. My DD1 absolutely loves her baby sister. DS has no interest.

    Wow! So many great replies!!

    My beautiful son is just over one now and you wouldn't believe how often i asked asked when the next one is.

    Part of me would love to have another one ( my pregnancy & birth were pretty good) but i feel i should wait a little longer.

    My DS is very well behaved but i am hoping closer to 2 is when we will eventually fall pregnant.

    I wouldn't say i get loads of help from my husband ( he tries), so it is nice to get advice on here about how other mothers found having their second.

    4 years between my two boys. They actually both had the same due date (10th of April) but DS1 was nearly 2 weeks overbaked and DS2 was 2 weeks early. But 4 years has been great, DS1 is pretty self sufficient and understands why I can't just jump up to do whatever he wants straight away.

    DS will be 2years and 10 months when DD is born. Im hoping it will be a great age gap! I had planned on DS being toilet trained before DDs birth but DS doesn't seem to agree with this, but that's life I guess!

    I had wanted to give birth to another when DD was approx 4, so fall pregnant somewhere around her turning 3.

    However, I split up with her father a few months before she turned 3, and he wouldn't have willingly had more children anyway.

    I've waited forever to have more. My daughter is 8 in July, and I still haven't had number 2. The idea is to TTC sometime mid next year, but I'm kind of torn these days... I've waited so long that I've got "my life," back, do I really want to throw that way in 2 years time to become someone's personal slave again for a few more years? But if I don't... well, then what? Will I regret this decision later on when making babies becomes harder?
