    3 years between DS1 and DS2 &3 and then 21 months until DS4. I found the 3 kids under two pretty full on. I wouldn't have chose it personally.

    DD and DS1 - 20 months. DS1 and DS2 ( aka the surprise bub). 3y 3m. This has been sòoooooo much easier then the first two. DD was still such a baby when DS1 wss born but I saw her as my big girl. I would have waited a bit longer in hindsight.

    We have 3 years and 2 months between our girls.

    We wanted a much smaller age gap but due to infertility and requiring ivf the gap was bigger than intended.

    My dd2 is just 19 days old and everyone said that she will be so different to dd1 "there are never two the same" I disagreed with them and here she is just as challenging as her sister and I thank my Lucky stars there is a reasonable age gap! Dd1 is so capable - toilet trained and can do so much for herself and I have such clingy babies, I would hate to think of my mental state if we had of been successful going back for ivf when dd1 was just one year old!

    DS1 adores his baby brother (11 months) and is wonderful with him. DS2 has eyes only for DS1 the minute he walks in lol
    18 yrs between my 2 and it is the same with them. So lovely to see and the fact that they are not related genetically makes it even more special.

    6.5 years and I love it...they get on great, there is no rivalry, both get their own time with DH and I and family time is great and it balances perfectly.

    I have a similar gap but my twins are the babies! I'd hoped for a smaller age difference, but it's worked out well so far for the same reasons.

    When this bump is born DS will be almost 2.5

    Starting to have little moments of pains over how tough that will likely be....but I'm sure all gaps have their challenges so we'll just cope as best we can....
