The girls are 21 months apart and I don't think I'd like anything more than that (we tried for a few months for L, or else they would've been closer). So I chose less than 2 years.

I haven't voted yet. My kids are 3 months, 2 years, 9 years, 14 year and 20 years.

I am having a hard time remembering how awful my older three were... being at Disneyland with a 3 year old and 8 year old and 14 year old is BAD. They are all three at differnt ride stages.

Compare that to two in diapers...

So far the absolute best spacing I've had was the 29 months from DS1 to the twins (pre-Elizabeth)-it was ideal, I would choose that if I had a choice

As much as I love my 17 and 19 months gaps... seeing Taylor at 3 with Seth is amazing. I'd say anything less than 3 years but DEFINITELY no more than 3 years (if I can help it LoL).

Less than 18 months. We wanted an 11 month gap, but had a few losses so it didn't happen.
I think Reagan will be AMAZING with Jack, but I credit a lot of that to her experience with Liam, and I don't think she'd be quite so good if it was her first time getting a new sibling.

Totally agree with this! I'm amazed by how mothering Layla is to Adrik (she seriously begs to feed him his bottles all day, I have to insist when I want to do it!) but I know it's because she's gone through this before/seen Aylie be a little mother for years.
