My daughter is going on 16 months old and I am currently 10/11 weeks pregnant with #2. They will be around 22-23 months apart. My question is, those of you with children around this age difference, how well did you handle it at first and how well did your older child do with the new baby?
my girls are 14mo apart. it's actually easier imo. i am scared for having a newb with a little kid and 1 toddler lol.
veronica was awesome with alana, she would help me get her diapers/wipes and if i had to go pee she would stand over the pack n' play to "watch" her for me lol.
Thats like my brother and I. Were 22 months apart. My mom loved it cause we played well together and I learned stuff a lot faster cause I would see him doing it. Now he and I are really close.
Mine are 22 months apart.
Not going to lie, it was a challenge in the beginning but the bond they have now is amazing.
My kids are 16 months apart and ill tell you its not as painstakingly difficult as people make it out to be. My kids pester each other but theyre best friend and wouldn't have it any other way.

My son and daughter are 2 yrs and 1 month apart. My son loves having a sissy. When she was born we included him in everything getting diapers, getting the baby wipes helping with just everything he could. Now they are 5 and 3 and they are bestfriends they can't go a min without each other. my son is in kindergarten and when he comes home 1st thing he does is huge his sissy and tell her how much he missed her. I love having them close in age
Mine are 17 months apart. It was hard to get used to at first but now it is a lot easier. Though DH helps out a lot when we go out as a family and we play baby tag haha and swap out who is taking care of the baby and the toddler.
in my humble opinion, I think close in age is easier. my oldest he was five when I had my second, she was 14months when I had my third, another girl, and she was almost two when I had my fourth. I want another already because I feel my youngest is getting too old (he'll be two in March )
My boys are 21 months apart and they are beat friends. Then my daughter is 12 months younger then ds2 and this baby will be about 22-23 months younger than DD. I LOVE having my kids this close!
My daughters are 22 months apart, it was perfect for us, my oldest was able to understand that there was a baby coming and always wanted to help with her, and now that they're older they're really close and they play so well together.
My children will be 26 months apart and I'm terrified! My little girl is a rotten thing with an attitude! I guess we'll find out next month how they will be together! :)
Me and my brother are 11 months apart, him an our sister are 2 days shy of being a year apart, and her and our eldest sister are 1 year apart. When my dad wants to know our ages he just figures out one and counts up or down.
I don't know how it was for my mother having us so close together but for me I always had someone to play with. I am the youngest 26, and am still very close with all my siblings. In fact we live within a ten minute radius of each other.
