hi everyone...just wanted to ask what should be the ideal gap between two kids? i have a 2 year and 4.5 months old son..is it the right time to plan for second baby or should we wait?

A women's body needs eighteen months to recover from a pregnancy and birth. Hence eighteen months between birth and the next conception is the minimum gap. The rest depends on your readiness as a family. I would also recommend that you have all your blood tests done to ensure that your values are in the normal range before planning a baby.
