How long did you wait to have another child?


I had twins they are 14 turning 15 months old in Feb and I already have three others kids the oldest is nine I wanted another kid my husband said it was too early and lol too much so i was just wondering how long other people waited?

Our oldest was 17 months when we conceived the second. She’ll be 25 months when the new baby gets here. She was our first, though – we don’t have five other kids to chase around, just one. I think it depends on what you can handle. Good luck.

My daughter is 9 yrs old and my son is 5 1/2 months..so we waited a while but i love the spacing between them. Every family is different and there are pros and cons to having them far apart and too close together so you have to decide what works for you and your family. It sounds like you have some time though as this is something you and your husband will need to work out between the two of you so it works for everyone involved.

I’m a single mom by adoption and was young when my daughter was born, so I was in no way ready for her to have a sibling close in age. She was 3 when I formally adopted her, but I had been taking care of her since birth. She’s 5 now and I have no intent to have another child for a while. Maybe I’ll be more inclined in 5 or more years. But right now I don’t want to share her with anyone else and I don’t want her to have to share me with a baby. I guess that’s selfish, but I like our life as it is.

Well my husband and I are just now try for baby #2 and our first child is 2 and a 1/2.

my son is 11 years old and my little baby girl just turned 4 weeks. I waited to make sure my husband was financially and emotionally supportive to raise another child, however waiting for your husband to tell you he is ready for another child changes the chemistry, and makes you feel more honored,loved and special 🙂

My son will be 2 yrs and 9 months when my second is born.
I am happy I had whole two years with him alone so he feels he didn’t have toshare me.
Even though I’ve given him almost 3 years of “mommy and me” time, I still feel guilty time to time when I think he’ll have to share me with another child.

I waited until my twins turned 4. Me and my husband were completely happy with our beautiful girls and we didn’t want any others, until I got the burning desire to have another one. My husband waited till they were four

my son just turned 4 today and my daughter will be 12, march 26th so almost 8 years..I love the space between them!

my daughter was 4.5 yo when my son was born
and my son is now 1yo and we are trying for number 3
we have not used any kind of birth-control since he was born, but we waited to have sex until he was about 5 months old

My daughter will be 18 months old when her new sibling is born this summer.
