Mine are one and three and just starting to play quite nicely together but I guess this depends on the mix of personalities whether they will like playing together so not so much about age gap.

A big pro for me was that it gets the baby stage finished sooner (if you plan to stop at 2) but a con is that there is no break, just as one is getting a bit more independent the second comes along so it feels like a long time dealing with baby stuff. I think the benefits of a smaller age gap will become more apparent as they get older. At the moment it feels very relentless and I haven't had a decent night sleep or a day when I haven't had to change a nappy or wipe food off my floor in a loooonnng time!

14 months between ds + ds then 29 months to the next ds. Younger ones closer, due to more similar interests than 1+2/1+3!! I have dc with further gaps and still hitty missy who gets on better! Same as any relationships I guess!
