Question: What age gap is best between babies, i am planning for the second baby ?
Answer: Health-wise it is better to recover from one pregnancy and childbirth before embarking on the next for your and your baby's sake, especially if your iron levels are low. A review of many studies in this area has shown a significantly higher risk of prematurity, low birth weight, and being small for gestational age in babies conceived within six months, compared to babies conceived within 18 to 23 months, of a previous birth. These risks were still evident for babies conceived within seven to 17 months of the previous birth, albeit to a lesser extent than those conceived within six months. If you aim for an 18-23 month gap between pregnancies you'll have time to recover your energies and replenish your body's resources.
