A friend of mine has 11 months between #1 and #2. 13 months between #2 and #3. 12 months between #3 and #4 and 14 months between #4 and #5. She currently has 5 kids under 5 (the eldest isn't 5 till November)

Oscar wasnt planned and things are hard. im back at work now that alf is 17mths and oz is 6mths. things are getting easier and just wondered if anyone has been through the same!

5 children under 5.......she must be mad or saintly! id b going mental!

it will probably get easier as they get older. I have an 18 month gap between ds1 and twins ds2&3 - the twins are nore a bit over 2 and it is much easier than when they were little. Increasingly they are at similar stages.

CarlyP Thu 02-Jun-05 13:44:39

i woyld also love twins!! must b mental!! but i had severe spd, group b strep, hypremisis, obstetric cholestasis, and both were born a month early and in scbu. so medical, and emotionally i cant put myself through it again!

you would be mad to go through that again ! You had more than your fair share anyway. Enjoy your "irish twins"

I also have two boys with 11 month apart. ds1 17 and ds2 6 month. Its really really a hard job specilly without any help. How can someone lookafter 5 children under 5?

CarlyP Thu 02-Jun-05 15:09:57

POMI, Exactly the same age gap as mine! blimey! it is so hard at times. cant wait til ds2 is crawling and ds1 stops wants to drag him everywhere to play! where abouts are you?

Pomi Thu 02-Jun-05 15:42:26

I cant wait till they start playing togther. At the moment ds1 lives in his own world, hardly gives any attention to ds2 who keep smiling at him. Also never let him play with his toys even for a second.

CarlyP Thu 02-Jun-05 15:50:27

oh bless. i bet ds1 just doesnt know 'what the point' of ds2 is yet!!! LOL as soon as ds2 is more interactive im sure ds1 will love him.

i live in sheering, herts/essex border. what bout u?

Pomi Fri 03-Jun-05 15:34:34

Whenever ds2 burps or sneezes, ds1 takes notice of him as if thinking he sounds like a human being.

I live very far from you in south east london.

I have 2 children 11 months apart - they are now 8 and 9 and get on brilliantly most of the time. The older one is a sole surviving twin, and also nearly died of a chest infection so I'm not too sure how her brther appeared! They also have an older sister who wasn't 2 when dd2 was born so I had 3 under 3 and a husband abroad.
Baby no 4 seems a breeze in comparison even though I'm older now - there's a seven year gap.

there's 10 months between my brother in law & his sister .

purpleturtle Fri 03-Jun-05 18:36:05

A friend's sister has 2 in the same school year. They should have been 11 months apart, but number 2 came quite early

brodiesmummy Fri 03-Jun-05 18:53:02

there are 10 and1/2 months between me and my brother I was a breastfeeding surprise!!!!

stitch Fri 03-Jun-05 19:13:29

my friend is one of twins. they have a brother 11 months younge. so this woman had three under the age of one
i thought 19 month age gap was bad enough

mine have 15 month gap. It's hard at the beginning but great when they are older.
