But what is the cut-off to have closely spaced children? I can figure out the other one as I have twins that are nearly 10 years apart from my second ds.

Well it is not Las Vegas nobody is carding you. My kids are 21, 15, 10, 2, almost 1, and the next one will be here when my youngest is 13/14 months old.

General rule around 2 years, some have babies what I think if as "heroically close"

Everyone has different opinions on this but we allow anyone to join in who think they have closely spaced children to me anything 2.5years and younger is close x

I think 2 years and under is close but I have always thought it was 2.5 years and younger on this board. My boys are 26 months apart so just over 2 years but I don't think of them closely spaced, my 2nd son and daughter are 11 months apart and are concitered close to me haha

I think the rule for this board made by admins was 2.5 years or younger but we have had members join who's children are 3 - 3.5yrs apart and we welcomed them in
