Cynthia Victor: There is 5 years between my 2 girls and it’s working out well so far.My older daughter absolutely adores her lil sister.I also found this gap works well for me as my older daughter was kind of independent in some ways when my baby was born so I was not juggling between 2 very small children.Some women are really natural and find less age difference no barrier(which I wishi was)?.Personally I think it 5 yrs difference is good but you have to decide based on your circumstances .April 20, 2017 at 10:26 pm #1918AnonymousInactive

Rupali Ahuja: They get along well. I would say from personal experience go for second child . My kids have 7years gap.What I have realised is siblings share what we cannot share as parents. There is a special bond.April 20, 2017 at 10:26 pm #1920AnonymousInactive
Shakira Ahamed: Siblings are the greatest blessings. Well,
In most cases and more so we realise their importance when we are grown up. I have seen many ‘only child’ people who crave for siblings and feel envious of others who have them even when they are grown up. That void they will always feel and feel god didn’t bless them with that .
I know some people can have one child for many other reasons medically or not able to conceive etc, that’s different and god may compensate them in one other ways we don’t know about.
But if we have the eligibility and means to have another child we must . In most cases like you are feeling, parents bring an another one just for the first one :). Some one said in a similar post long time on this group itself on the same topic – the first one is for you and the Second one is for the first one ?
My 1st and 2nd have 6 years gap and I have thanked Allah many times for the distance as she has been an immense help to me that she is little older and like Said above it’s easy to manage the younger one, when one child is independent. My views but it’s no way an issue . I do believe you must try to give her this joy ?reallyApril 20, 2017 at 10:27 pm #1921AnonymousInactive

Dipti Rakesh Patel: I have 8 year gap between my son and daughter but they are very close I m happy tooApril 20, 2017 at 10:28 pm #1924AnonymousInactive
Neeta Bhagat: Dear Anonymous, I was in your situation not too long ago and got all kinds of advice from various women. But one very sound advice I received (and followed) was to have a child because YOU want another child to love and care for and not to provide a sibling. So please stop and think about it. Your daughter will move on and form close relationships which will provide her companionship and teach her about sharing etc in life.
Anyway coming back to your actual question – I have a age gap of 6 years between my two. Wouldn’t say they are close at the moment as their interests are too different but I understand they will over time.
Hope this long reply helps!April 20, 2017 at 10:28 pm #1925AnonymousInactiveApril 20, 2017 at 10:28 pm #1926AnonymousInactive
