    My Husband and I currently have one son, Josh, who is now 18 months. We want to continue growing our family but we don’t know if we have given ourselves enough time between having kids to start again. How long did you guys wait? Is there a magic number that is a good amount of time between kids?

    Not to sound like everybody else you probably have talked to but there is no “Magic Time” girl! whenever you and your husband decide you want to have another is the perfect time to start trying again. Nobody is ever really ready so if you feel in your hearts that you’re ready, don’t hesitate! 🙂

    There is no magic number between children. It all depends with your decision. Like how long are you willing to wait. As I can see the decision varies from one person to another. Like I can say when dealing with a profession. Many women tend to give small gaps between their babies. This I because they want to get down with bearing. Then when they are back to work they want to fulfil it. So you can find that they give up to 2 years gap. Then when they are done. They concentrate on their businesses and professions. But if you are not a busy woman. You can give larger gaps. Like between 2 to 5 years gap. It all depends with what you are comfortable with. In my family I a the first born. The second born is now a teenager. We gave each other a gap of 11 years. So it all depends with what you prefer. I can say that the decision wholly depends on you and your husband. But try to chose the one that is going to favor you.

    It depend more on the two of you than what people are saying. Some people want a small gap between their children while others want it to be wide. Another factor to consider is finances. Some delay to have a second child until they have acquired more wealth. Business or career is also a major factor. if one is doing well at the moment, she avoids getting pregnant as taking care of the new born will divide their attention. There is also age factor. You don’t want to wait until you are too old. There are some conditions associated to giving birth at an old age. Discuss with your husband about all the factors and then make a decision. All the best.

    It just depends between the two of you. What age gap are you comfortable with. Do you want to stay taht long. I have seen couples giving a gap of ten years. Others just some few months. It depends with your life schedule. I can say that because of various reasons. Others want to have baby first before they concentrate on their persona life. Like carriers and professions. Others want to focus in their professions first. So they would wait till when they are finally stable to start having kids. Others feel having children in between their careers is no big deal. This is the reason I am telling you taht the decision is wholly between the to of you. The best you ca get is people sharing stories and decide which method is much more better. Unless otherwise all the best to what you will decide.

    The gap you leave between babies depends on when you and your partner feel ready to have another child. It also depends on when you’re able to conceive. Babies don’t always come to order! If you’re in your late 30s, your fertility may influence how soon you start to try again. Women’s fertility does start to decline from the age of 35 onwards. Even so, it’s better for your health to recover from one pregnancy and birth before embarking on the next. Experts recommend at least six months, but preferably a year. Research has shown that it may be better for your baby, too. Compared with a longer gap, babies conceived within six months of a previous pregnancy are at a higher risk of: prematurity. Low birth weight and measuring small. A gap of at least 18 months will give you time to recover your energy and replenish the nutrients you lost during your previous pregnancy. You’ll also have time to mentally and physically prepare yourself for getting pregnant again and having a new addition to the family.

    You can never judge that. It’s better that you start having more kids. The answer to your question is nothing. You should not think about it. It’s hard. I hope you understand.

    The safest thing to do if you don’t want to get pregnant soon after childbirth is to use a contraceptive. Many women become fertile again soon after childbirth although others can take longer, especially if they are breastfeeding. In a review of studies published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology♂ in 2011, most women who were not breastfeeding had their first postpartum ovulation about six weeks after childbirth while some ovulated sooner of later. The mean time to return of ovulation was 45 to 94 days after delivery. Important facts to note include. A return of your fertility is a matter of how soon your brain hormones and ovulation, which were suppressed during pregnancy, return to normal. As soon as you start ovulating again, you can get pregnant. It is possible to ovulate and be fertile within a month after delivery and have another baby as early as ten months after that childbirth. Be sure to discuss any fertility concerns and your plans for birth control with your doctor during your pregnancy and at your postpartum check-up.

    Hello. I hope you are doing fine. Well, there is no magic number in this. You can always plan for the next baby. As long as you are healthy and sound you can try for it. Talk to your husband and mutually decide it. There is no harm in trying now or later. It depends on the couples how they go for it. Woman who are just house wives complete their families soon. On the other hand, those who are in some profession might take a little longer. They are involved in the other professional tasks too which need proper attention. If you think you can manage you time for both the babies you should go for it. Remember, the eighteen months old baby should not get ignored. Don’t neglect him with the arrival of the new. All the very best to you. Stay blessed.

    Hi dear. I am really happy to hear about your son. I think one year is a good time. However, it depends on you. If you are really fit. Go for it. I wish you good luck. Take care. Lots of love and support.

    Asia, I am glad that you are thinking of expanding to your family. There is no good number of years. But age plays a major role in determining your fertile window. However, doctors suggest that an ideal gap between the kids in 2 to 3 years. But it depends on how long the fertility is ion your favor. For a better consultation, see a fertility doctor. Good luck

    Well, after reading the post, I think it’s adorable that you’re thinking of another baby. Dear, there isn’t any perfect gap that should be between children. It just depends upon your will and desire. If you think you guys are ready for another child then why not? Your baby’s in a good age and honestly, a gap of 2 to 3 years between children would be something I’d prefer. The rest is obviously your decision. Best of luck!

    I hope you are doing good. MCs are one of the most devastating things that can happen to couples. Their lives become a misery if they take it to their heart. This problem has been solved by modern science as it helps you to perform certain procedures to have your own baby. People are going for it. You need to look for good clinics, because a clinic with bad image or staff would increase your problems. One that I found to be Adonis. So do look for a good clinic before you get you to get it done. I hope this helps you Wish you all the best.

    According to the doctor’s recommendation. 3 years is a perfect time. You should wait three years before you go for another kid. It would be better for both mother and baby. Th doctors always recommend this thing. You know you should be very careful while choosing your clinic for your maternity. There are clinics that are not good for us. Like my friend has a very bad experience with lotus clinic. I just don’t want to talk about them. Congratulations, and wait for 18 months more then start trying.
