It all depends on what you want, OP.
Here is what my family looked like several years ago:
Oldest Sister: 20
Older Brother: 18.5
Little Brother: 12
Little brother: 8
little sister: newborn
So: my oldest sister is nearly 5 yrs older than me and we didn’t get along at all growing up, but we’re best friends now that we’re older. But she and my older brother were best friends growing up and shared all their HS friends.
My oldest brother is about 3.5 yrs older than me and he and I have a good relationship, not super close, but not distant at all.
My little brother and I always have been, always will be close.
My brother who is 7 years younger than me, we don’t get along that well, but he’s still a teenager, so that will probably change.
My sister is 15 years younger than me and she is more like a niece than a little sister. But we have a good relationship 🙂
That being said, I like 3yrs apart, I got along with my siblings that were 3 yrs apart from me, it wasn’t too much/too little. A lot of families seem to have kidsd 2yrs apart, it’s more common. And that works too.
I think I’ll want to wait, I like zippylefs advice, wait til they’re potty trained lol! That’s about 2.5-3yrs old. sometimes earlier.
