    Default How big is yours??? Age gap between kiddies that is!

    Whats the age gap between your kids? Is it perfect for you or would you have preferred more or less?

    I have 4 years between DS1 and 2 but will be looking at an age gap of 7 years between DS2 and the newbie... ought to be interesting i think lol

    My kids have an almost 3 year age gap. I'm not sure if more or less would be better. I guess there are pros and cons with any age gap.

    23 months between my girls. They're only 2.5yo and 8 months old so too soon to say if that's a good gap, but the baby already hero worships her big sister so I'm hoping they'll be best of friends

    2.5yrs

    It was tough the first 6m-12m, but now ds1 is 4 yrs old and a little more mature, it's lovely to see him and ds2 (19m) run around!

    2 years. It's a great gap but DS is pretty mean to his little sister.

    Between dd1 and ds3 is 19 years.
    I have few around 2 years apart a few around 4 to 6 years. There is no perfect gap for me they all have good and bad points.

    4.5 years. It's ok, though I reckon closer would have been slightly better. It was good when DD was a newborn, DS was already quite self sufficient so I'm that respect it was better I guess.

    Do you guys find it difficult (for lack of a better way to describe it) to share yourself at times when you have 2 littlies both wanting you at the same time?

    Once no.2 comes along in March there will be a 9yr & 11month age gap between the two!!! eeeekkkkk!!!!
    Going to be very interesting to see how the only child copes once her world gets turned upside down by a sibling!
