How soon is too soon ?

My little girl has just turned 6 months old and we have now just finished our breast feeding journey, which was so emotional for me but the right thing to do for both of us as I am returning back to work in the next two weeks. I know this might sound crazy but I am really ready for another baby, I have always wanted two children and both close in age as me and my sister where 12 months apart and have grown up so close and would love this for my children.My partner thinks we should at least wait until our baby has turned one but It take me 8 months to fall pregnant with my little girly now and it could take even longer next time. Is this too soon is my partner right ? Would love to hear when other mummys planned baby number 2!

    I Personally think there is no such thing as to soon, as long as you and your partner both feel ready for another baby then that is fine,dont listen to other people if you are ready you know. I always wanted both my children close in age (they are 18 months apart) and It was really hard for the first year but now wow its everything I dreamed off they keep each other entertained, I listen to them laughing early mornings on the monitor and seeing them grow up together is the best thing.

    I think this depends on whenever both parents feel ready or not. I had my two children 2 and half years apart,we started trying when my little boy was 18 months and for us its the best thing we did. Trust me close in age means a lot of fighting and a lot of “mineee” but its funny to watch this as they are growing up together and becoming best friends. For other people they like an older age gap,one of my best friends has a 7 year old and 10 month old and she said she loves the age gap as the 7 year old helps her with everything, the baths, keeping him entertained and running to get more baby wipes if she needs them. She also said about having the time for one on one with her children is great as the baby gets all the attention while the eldest is at school and when he gets home he gets her full attention. If you and your partner both feel ready then its definitely not to soon.

    its not silly at all, when you know you know. just go with what you want! there are pros and cons of having them close and apart. pros, they keep eachother entertained and always have a play mate, cons, difficult to manage a baby whilst dealing with toddler tanturms. You also get your life back sooner as they grow up and move out roughly around the same sort of time too. my parents had me and my brother 8 years apart and they always say if they had stopped at me they couldve retired early and lived in another country instead of waiting for my brother to move out!
