When to have the next? Now, next year or longer?

I love being a mum and since I was young I have said that I would like to have three children. We have one, who is now seven months old, and we have been talking about trying for baby number two but we don't know when we should do this?

I like the idea of having children close in age but I don't want them to be too close in age that I struggle to cope.

At the moment Molly is the easiest and happiest baby you have seen. She rarely cries and likes nothing more than rolling about the floor entertaining herself (don't worry I do play with her but she loves to be independent). She is so easy to deal with but as she grows older she will surely become more demanding and I don't want to let her suffer either.

I have a fear, and I realise I may be being silly, but at 30 already I don't want to be an older mum and therefore have to have children closer together. Am I being silly? When is too old to have children?

I had a c-section in February so naturally I am not wanting to become pregnant too soon to ensure that everything is healed as I would ideally want to experience labour this time round - yep I want to feel pain, I am not sure why but I would love to have a natural birth.

So when should we start trying? We have the folic acid just need to decide what to do.
