Too soon to TTC?
I had my second child 2.5 months ago and was planning to wait a year to TTC again, but my husband and I have recently started to consider TTC now because the timing of the birth would be good for our situation, we like the idea of children close in age, and I like the idea of being done with pregnancies sooner. I know it's generally recommended to wait a year, or 6 months, or 18 months, depending on the source of info, but my husband feels the actual basis for those recommendations is lacking (and he is a scientifically-minded person). Is it ok have kids a year apart (assuming I would be fertile)? How serious of a risk is it to the hypothetical baby, myself, or my currently nursing baby? My baby is sleeping through the night regularly (I know, I am lucky!) and my oldest is adjusting very well to a younger sibling, so from that standpoint it seems doable. I am 30 and healthy, on prenatals. Anyone have any concrete facts about this, or personal experience? Thanks!
