My kids are 16 months apart (now 5 & 6) and they are great friends. I'm now having a third, but I love the close age gap between my kids. They play together all the time and it does get easier with time. We wer also in and out of diapers much quicker than people who spaced out their kids more. They are still in diapers with their second. Enjoy your babies!

Hello

I notice your two kiddies that are close together are a Boy & a Girl ~ Do you think they are just as close as if they were the same gender?

Ju-bubbs...I hope he comes around, and you can sort things out, if that is what you want.

Kelly...it was a gender scan we had at babybond...(not telling family the gender, so it's hush hush other than on here) but after 2 step daughters...and 2 daughter's of our own...we are having a baby BOY!!!!

Sure, they have the odd spat now and again & drive me nuts; but after having the same thoughts about whether the oldest was losing out on infancy and would resent the youngest, I can honestly say it all works out! Eldest refused to address the youngest as anything other than 'baby' for the first 3 months, lol. I even started an undergraduate degree when youngest was 10 weeks so I had mixed emotions about that too, but now having been through it all, it really does work out like people say - so hang in there! Incidentally, neither of them know yet about their impending sibling, but again, at least they have each other to go through it all with

Happy to help! Not sure about the different gender thing being an issue, I'm sure it certainly helped that they were both boys & into the same things but that's only been my experience. Hopefully someone who has had a girl & boy close together will get in touch soon

Also, sorry for the delayed response! Had youngests birthday party today so have been scurrying around sorting things for that. Hope you are well, I am currently suffering from a bout of self induced indigestion - it though

Aww ~ Thankyou for that lovely post That was just what the Doctor ordered

Im so glad your Boys are so close I do wonder if this new LO is a Boy if my DD will be so close, rather than if it is another Girl?
