I don't have back to back babies, but I have been trying to decide when I want to have a second... I don't want a large distance between them, was thinking about TTC around the time Lyla is a year? That'd put 21 months between them. But then I was thinking about just waiting and seeing what happens...NTNP basically...I want them to be close in age, but I certainly don't wanna get pregnant 2 months after I have Lyla...

I'm interested to see how this thread pans out, and to hear about everyone's experiences.

Not me personally, but my best friend conceived #2 when her LO was 3 months old. They are now 17 months and 5 months, she is coping amazingly well and now actually says she's glad that she had them so close together!

A few people i have spoken to who have left a few years between their children have told me if they could do it again theyd have them one straight after the other to get the sleepless nights out of the way! i see what they mean about this but at the same time i think if i was pregnant and then had another newborn i would be worried i was missing out on Belle's lovely early days if you know what i mean!

Yeah, that was why I thought at like a year old I would try again. I don't want to miss all the "landmarks."

But at the same time I don't want to fall back into a semi-normal routine just to have a newborn all over again.

I'm seriously thinking about just not going on any contraceptive after I give birth this time, and just waiting to see what happens. Everything happens for a reason, right?

We wont be back to back but we are ntnp for number 3 so there will be around 2 years between Harry and baby! I like the age gap between lottie & harry but we had just got over bottles and nappies and then started it again! I think once we're finished with all the baby stuff we might not want to go back to it again iykwim x

I don't have back to back babies but I know a few friends that have had babies very close together. My friend had a month and a half old and fell pregnant! But she loves it and says once this next baby is born they will be trting for their 3rd by the time the new baby is 3 months!

We want a relatively close age gap between Summer and our next, we want to get the 'baby times' out of the way plus we want Summer to have a brother or sister she can grow up close to. We plan on ttc our second in May when Summer will be 10 months old.

we dont have b2b but... pretty close age gaps, just under 2 years.
i would love one straight after the next one IF the next delivery ISN'T a c-section again.
if it is i will have to wait to heal up. xxx
really looking forward to going through it all though WHATEVER the outcome xxx
