I have almost 3 years between 1 and 2 and liked it. His communication was good and he could play nicely while I got bub to sleep etc. Still hard in many ways, but I would have preferred at least a 3 year gap between 2 and 3 had I not unexpectedly fallen pregnant and will now end up with a 2 yr gap. Not overly happy about it, feeling very worried, as number 2 is very clingy to me. But it is what it is.
