Can you tell what age gap you have between child 2 and 3? And if it works for you?
We want to have a third but I can't make up mind when.
Age gap between 1/2 is 3 years.
Thank you!

8 years, but then we have 8 years between 1&2 as well.

I always think 4 years is a nice age gap, that's what there was between me and dsis

19 months between 1 and 2

2yrs 5 months between 2 and 3

(2yrs 9 months between 3 and 4)

I think every age gap has pros and cons and whether it works or not is much more dependant on the personalities of your children, rather than the time period.

2 years 3 months.

Lots of families at school with siblings in both classes.

Worked well for us. Even though they don't actually like each other (both are desperate to be liked by DC1)

If I'd planned it carefully I probably would have done age gaps of 3 years, and 3 years.
