I really dont think there is a perfect age gap. My oldest was 5.3 years old when I had my second, I am currently 20.5weeks pregnant with my third and the second born and the newborn will be 20months apart. I am still bf my 17mth old and he is not seeming to stop any time soon. If push comes to shove I will tandem feed. I am a bit scared of the challenge of having a toddler and newborn but I feel it will manage just fine. Do what is best for you.

Mommy to 2 beautiful boys.
I had my DS at 24 he is 16 now, my DD @ 32, she just turned 8 and I'm currently 6wks pg (I turned 40 in April)
This age gap worked for me (I also have two stepsons and with them in the mix, it brings the age gap down to 4 years LOL)
