Ideal age gap between twins and another bub?

hi , I had one son first, 21months later twin daughters, and then three years 8 months our last son was born. I had four children under 6 and it was ok. love how close they are now as adults, and apart from the teenage years, it was all pretty good. I definitely allowed the twins to grow to some measure of independence before I had the last bub.. Marie

I have twins and am suspecting I might be pregnant...not 100% sure however. However just thinking about it, my boys are 2.5 now and I think they could handle it now...any earlier though and I think I might have torn my hair out! Of course, this is just from my experiences! (: I think when the twins are school age could be good because you will get the time when they are at school with bub and they will be old enough to help if they want to?
I am also curious about the family dynamics too! I have heard that its hard when you have a singleton and then twins come next, but not sure about the other way around!

hi thetwinsmum. there was no big deal between having the single bubs with twins. I had single boys either side of my twin daughters, there was no problem. just busy, and full on sometimes but they are all great mates now. marie..

My boys were 10 weeks off turning 5 when I had my dd. they were in their 3rd term of kinder (preschool) and I don't think I would have been able to handle any smaller of an age gap.
They were very understanding about the baby being needy and very good with following instruction and were gentle and loving with the baby too.

My twins just turned 3 and I'm 13 weeks preg with a single. So my pair will be 3.5 when newbie arrives, they go to kindy 4 days a week so I'm not too concerned. Their fighting is crazy at the moment but I suspect DD will turn her bossy nature toward being the 'mini mum' to new bub and stop picking on DS
