    For those of you wanting another baby, when do you think you will start trying for one? What do you think is the best age gap.

    We were thinking about two years gap would be a good gap. What about you?

    I wanted about a 2 year age gap but we were very lucky to fall pretty quickly with our 2nd so there will be about 20 months between them :)

    Well it all depends on our situation; I'd do a 2-3 year difference if I could but it'll most likely be more like 5 or so years from now.

    In my family it's me- 19, my sister- 17, my brother- 15.. that's a nice age gap, close in age but we were old enough that we were out of diapers & the crib by the time the next baby came around LOL.

    I don't think I want another baby. If I go for another.. maybe when Elyse is 4 or 5. Even though I don't like the idea of the big-ish age gap, I won't be ready again for a long time.

    I am thinking now but just cos I LOVE being a mum to my beautiful girl. We aren't supposed to be having anymore I may just change my mind about that in a year or so or I may not!

    If I get the job I'm going after we'll start trying in about 6 months. I want them close together. We aren't really liking the baby stage all that much. There's so much we want to do with Danny and teach him and show him. And we can't really do any of that for a few years. We don't want Danny finally getting old enough to really take places and then have another infant that can't do any of it. We want both kids being at that stage at the same time.

    I wanted to start straight away but hubby didnt :sulk: but since then my eldest has turned into a fully fledged teenage girl with all the trappings and I have now decided I dont want anymore in case I get another girl.....I can only stand my heart being broken twice......:cry:......if they find a way of guaranteeing the sex of a baby I'll think about it!! :lol:

    My older kids are all about a year apart , its good because when they were younger they all played together but it was hard to give everyone attention they needed . my last 3 are 6 years apart and I like it much better that way .

    We have decided we will start trying again after Brennan turns 2, so it will be a 3 year gap.

    I need to find a partner first. A one for life this time. Ideally Alasdair will be at least 5. I would like another one before I'm 30 tho (I'm 23 now).
