Parents of more than one How Far Apart Are Your Babies? - Page 3

post #41 of 43

Our kids are 26 months apart.  Originally we were thinking more like 5 years, since I have a few friends doing it this way and it seems to work for them.... but then I lost my job and was unemployed last year, so we decided to do the whole pregnancy thing without having to deal with maternity leave, working etc.  My husband kind of wanted it this way anyway so we could get all the baby-having done while all the gear was still around, and then move on.

 

So far my older one LOVES LOVES LOVES her younger sister, to the point that it can be overwhelming for her younger sister. If my older one is near a tartrum, often if we just bring the little one in the room it diffuses the escalation.  It is hard work with such little girls right now, but I hope it will pay off with them being close as they get older.... time will tell.

We are ttc our second. Our DS is 5 months old. I know it sounds crazy, but my brothers were 13 months apart and they were very close. My older sister is 7 years older than me, and I feel like she isnt as close. The oldest of my two younger brothers is 4 years younger than I. I dont feel particularly close to him either. We only were ever in the same school  for two years in elementary school. I want my babies to be close :)

Just beware your milk supply may not survive past the first few months of your preg. Every woman is different so YMMV. I lose my supply totally at13 weeks.
