Q.

RIGHT TIME?

My son is a very happy 14 month old but I am feeling it is time for my second baby - especially since I will be 35 next year. Will this impact negatively on my son and should I wait a little longer or is two years between siblings okay?

You should note that even if you fell pregnant immediately your son will be nearly 2 years old by the time your new baby arrives. There should'nt be any problem with your son when his new sibling arrives.
