    Hi Huma,
    I am interested to know why you think 5 years is too much gap. Can you share some examples?
    Thanks!

    Dear Huma

    Mythili has only 1 kid aged 5.

    This topic has been discussed before and each one has his or her own opinion on this.Most people with kids with an age gap of 2-3 yrs,will always say that the best age gap is 2-3 yrs. Most people with kids with an age gap of 5-6 yrs, will say that is the best gap to have.

    It all depends on the kids.Whatever be the age gap,if they are able to get along well,that is what matters.

    I feel 10 or more yrs gap will definitely be too long..because one child will be grown up by then and have his/her own interests and friends and the other will just be a small baby.

    in my opinion, 2-3 years is ideal. If you are young, you can wait a little bit longer, say 4 years.

    Hi all,

    In my opinion, 3-4 yrs. ideal gap. Some feel, bringing up two children (i.e. within short gap) is better...as they grow together. But I feel, the first child should need proper/ full attention till 4yrs. before one goes for the next....

    hi

    as said by everybody it absolutely depends on you...well the first 3 years of bringing up the kid is a very tuff task and thts why many suggest to have 2 babies at quite a short gap possible....but once ur 1st one has started going to school i think u can think abt having the second one....:-D
