Question sibling age gaps....

My new brother was born today

and that means there are 25 and a half years between me (the oldest) and Euan ...and also 6 years between Tyler and his new uncle lol

I have 4 brothers (aged 23,16,11 and new ) now and 2 sisters (aged 15 and 14). and i have good relationships with my other brothers and sisters.

does anyone else have big age gaps and does it affect the relationship you have with your sibling?

Re: sibling age gaps....

Congrats on being a sister once again xxx
We dont have massive gaps compared to some others i know (me-eldest 24,Tye,22,Isaac,16,Fred,14) but it was a big enough gap that i looked after the lil uns as i grew up
Theres a 14 year gap between Corker n his lil bro-thats how come he was so good at changing Jacks nappies till he was potty trained......which proved useful haha

Re: sibling age gaps....

My eldest sister is 56 this year and im 41 in 3weeks. My other sister is 50 and my brother is 49 in september. I am closer to my other sister than my eldest. I think its because my eldest sister got married when i was 6 so was just me and my other sister sharing a room even though she went off to university.

Re: sibling age gaps....

I'm an only child so have no personal experience to draw on but in my opinion having 2 children with a big age gap is like having 2 only children.

The elder one will be more like another parent/aunt/uncle to the younger one.

My eldest sister is 32, then me 28 then youngest sister is 22...THEN little brother 12.

20 years between eldest and youngest. My younger brother has 2 older Nieces and 1 older Nephew ( by 6 weeks ).
My mum and sister where in the hospital together having their Boys.
Then my eldest is only a year younger than his uncle

I bet it's so weird being pregnant at the same time as your mum.

I couldn't disagree more Lilly. I have siblings 8, 15 and 16 years older than me and I see my eldest sister (the one 16 years older) as a sister and I always have done. My relationship with her is different to other relations because she is my sister.

Re: sibling age gaps....

I'm an only child but my late husband had a brother a lot older than him which makes my girls cousins like a different generation.

Re: sibling age gaps....

I have older brothers and sisters, oldest will be about 40 now and I am the youngest at 27, I don't talk to any of em

There are 5 yrs between my daughter and son, they fight like cat and dog, argue but also can play real nice and stick up for each other

Re: sibling age gaps....

I'm an only one, my parents gave up after me
My two daughters have kids, my eldest has a 20 year old daughter
my youngest has two sons 5 and 1, seems she thought it was time to catch up on big sister

Re: sibling age gaps....

My family does things in groups

I'm an only child but all my cousins (there's only four of them) and I were born within four years of each other - and we all waited and had our children, between us we have 9 and had them within about six years of each other.
