So, I just had a baby in January. His older sister is 8 so they were very widely spaced apart. Well, yesterday I found out I'm pregant. I'm kind of freaking out because I don't know anything about closely spaced siblings. I'm pretty nervous and would like any advice I can get. They'll be about 17 months apart.

They'll be like twins. It'll probably be nerve wrecking at first when adjustment is needed once the new baby arrive. But once everything is in control. Everything would be fine. Don't stress on it.

My oldest two are 14 months apart. All mine are pretty close, so I don't know anything different, but we've really enjoyed it. Especially as they've gotten older and are able to play together and be on the same sports teams and what not. When they were babies it was kind of like twins...I did everything twice.
