For those of you who have more then one child, what are your experiences with having kids 2, 3 or more years apart. My dilema is, DH wants to have another one soon and my daughter is only 18 month old. He wants me to get pregnant before she turns two so they could be less then 2 years apart. I don't think I can handle a toddler and and newborn. I'm not ready to face sleep deprivation and screaming toddlers. My daughter finally wakes up after 8am and can preoccupy herself with toys and other things while I do stuff. I just don't know how other women do it, I've seen moms at the mall with a newborn in a baby bjorn and one in the stroller and another one walking next to it. DH says when kids are two years apart they tend to be friends more then if they are 3 or more years apart. I don't think it's true. but I was an only child. Please share your motherly wisdom ladies.. I'm just a beginner at this and don't know if waiting too long will prove to be a good or bad thing.
