After Having a Baby

Doctors say you should have your babies at least 18 months apart. That means you should wait until your youngest child is at least 9 months old before you become pregnant again.

Why? Your body needs that much time to heal itself on the INSIDE

If any of your babies were born a few weeks early or weighed less than 5 1/2 pounds, then you should wait until you baby is 18 months old before getting pregnant again.
