Pros and cons of having another baby?

I was just wondering the pros/cons of having another baby when my first is 2 1/2, or if we should wait to have another till he’s 4 1/2-5. Any advice on those age gaps and how hard/easy it was at either age would be appreciated! Thanks!

My boys are 3 yrs and 4 months apart. They love eachother and get along. Of course they have some sibling rivalry but their bond is strong.

I had my son when my daughter was almost 3 and the bond they have is anazing yes they have there moments but who doesn’t they now 15 and 18 best of friends

My girls are 2.5 years apart and my now year old lives her 9 month old sister and helps me whenever she can. Obviously no fighting yet but we will see when they both get older.

My first 2 are 20 months apart and my 2nd and 3rd will be 16.5 months apart. It’s all about how you feel. When my 3rd is born at the end of august I will have 3 that are 3 and under

My kids are 2 1/2 yrs apart. They love playing with each other and the bond is amazing. Yes they have their spats but who doesn’t

All 3 of mine are 3 1/2 years apart. We did it that way so that the last one was potty trained before we had another set of diapers to change.

I have a 3 month old and a 2 year old… Its definitely rough in my opinion, I wouldve waited at least another year if I had the knowledge then that I have now lol I’m sure as they get older itll be easier I just dont like having 2 still in diapers lol

My kids are 8, 3 in a few weeks and 2 months. Theres pros and cons to both age gaps. Both my girls are really helpful with their little brother.

We have 9 ages 14,12,11,10,9,7,6,3 and 2 …it was ruff but once we got the routine down it’s a piece of cake now.

My kids are all 2.5-3.5 years apart & I feel like it’s the perfect gap. I would never change it.

My oldest is 5 years older than my middle child. There is only 15 months between my younger 2. I think there’s pros and cons to both age gaps. All 3 of mine are incredibly close. My oldest just has different interest than the younger 2.

My 2 daughters are about 6.5 years apart. They have a super strong bond and love eachother so much. It’s also nice to have my now 8 year olds help every now and then.

My siblings and I are 4 years apart. I wasn’t a big fan. Maybe it was because I was the middle… not old enough to hang with the big kids, yet the younger kids did too many baby/younger activities. My kids are close together, yet my oldest and youngest are 12 years apart. Wouldn’t change it. Love having them so close together. :heartpulse:

Personally, I wouldn’t till this Covid thing is gone…god forbid get it while ur pregnant. :heartpulse:

I’ve got four who are all spaced 2/ 2.5 years and my 5th will be the youngest by five years. You can’t plan everything :joy:

I got almost 11 5 3 1

My girls are 4,2 and 5 months, it’s hard at the moment but they will be closer I think because of the smaller age gap

My first 2 are 16 months apart then my last is 3 years apart my oldest get along so some better because they are so close in age…
