    Default age gaps between kids

    hubby and i want to start TTC baby no.3 but we are indecisive about what is a good age gap...

    there is 4.5 years between our first and second....

    we dont want an age gap that big between our 2nd and 3rd...

    soo.... is an almost 3 year age gap better than and almost 4 year age gap?

    what age gaps do you have between your kids? what worked better? what would you change if anything?

    There is a 5 year gap between my boys.
    Both are special needs so I doubt I could have done a smaller gap.
    I would love a smaller gap if I have another. 3 years would be my ideal gap.

    I have 4.5 between my two, and will be aiming for under 2 yrs if we go for a third. I love the big gap but don't want to drag the baby days out much longer.
