One of my good friends got pregnant with her 2nd when her son was 6 months old– it actually wasn’t too hard of an adjustment for her. The kids are so close and keep eachother entertained quite well! Things like potty training were a lot easier too since they were closer in age.

 

Congrats and have fun 🙂

My friends are a boy/girl combo. He is the older one and he whorships the ground his little sister walks on. apparently his love for her is going to her head because she is getting a little bossy lol theyre trying to nip that in the bud before it gets out of control!! Lol

My brother and i are 1year 1week apart.  Honestly, since he is the baby in the family he was a lil shit growing up lol. But now we are fine. Everyone thought we were twins when we were little. <br /><br />my mom was trying for 6 years before me so to have another so soon was a blessing. It will be fine you will manage. COngrats.

This will work out in your favor for sure! I’m not a parent, but I’m close in age to my brother and I have several friends who are part of stair-step sibling sets. It’s a good motivator for the older kid to “learn how to do X so you can teach your sib.” And it’s a good motivator for the younger kid to learn how to do something that their sibling can do. Potty training, reading, chores…

Congrats!!  My husband and his brother are 1 yr apart and are very close!  I think it might make things easier in some ways.

akazan:  congratulations! I got pregnant with my 3rd when my middle one was 5 months old! There’s 14 months between them and they are so close its beautiful to watch! They are now 7 months and 21 months and now baby 3 is crawling she follows baby 2 every where. It’s a bit mad and crazy at Times and I sometimes feel a bit useless cause they’re demanding and I can’t get the housework done to my ocd standard and hate FI coming home to a mess but I wouldn’t change it for the world.  Good luck and congratulations again

Congratulations! My mom had me and my siblings super close in age and the three of us have always been close and it is so fun! My sister was 7 months old when my mom got pregnant with my brother and he was only 3 months old when she got pregnant with me!

As my mom says, you might as well just get it over with! I have a 9 month old, and she’d be happy if we were having another one quickly.
