When it comes to age gaps between children, everyone has an opinion on what the best period in between kids might be. And while the common trend is around a two-year space between offspring, what isn’t so often lauded is the large age gap.
We opted for a four-and-a-half-year gap between our first and second born. “Won’t it be just like having only one child?” people asked, or worse: “Why even bother having another one at all?”
But what I (and others in the same situation) have come to learn is that there’s actually a lot to love – and only one thing I loathe – about having a large age gap between children.
