Hi!
My first son is 8 and my third son is 1 and they were both born in October, 2 days apart!

We plan on alternating years for parties...last year they both had one as we were having the 1st birthday party and had promised DS1 that he could have one that year, but from now on...definitely every other year original.gif

I have 3 (yes 3) siblings all in the same week- well there is 5 days between the first and last birthday.  Besides the fact that you are well and truly sick of cake by the end of that week there has never been any sort of issue.  My parents were never birthday party people, I think we each had maybe 1 between preschool and 18.

I'm currently pregnant and due 2 weeks after DD's birthday, I can. Ot come up with any scenario that would make this a bad thing, even if they do end up being on the same day

Not in the same month, but I have DD2 in Jan, DD1 2wks later in early Feb, & then DS is a month later in March. DH is also 4 days before DD2.

I don't find it too bad. The only problem is all the cake that gets eaten over the 4 birthdays. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, only when you have cake leftovers as big as your head.

I have twins and an older child all born in the same month. Never really been an issue for us. The twins have the same birthday party (because they would invite the same kids anyway) and DD has a seperate one.

The only problem is that it is also right before Christmas so finding special gifts for both birthday and Christmas can be a bit tricky (and expensive).

My first two are both June babies, 13 days apart, and we do something special for each.  Number 3 & 4 are both September babies, just 2 days apart......not sure how we are going to handle this yet as DS 4 is yet to have his first Birthday.  I am guessing we will do the same as the other two, have a joint birthday afternoon tea with extended family and on their actual Birthday they get to choose there fav dinner and dessert and it's all about them.

I have 2 born in December, then Christmas, then 1 born in January... it's a real kerfuffle believe me.

I am a twin and our birthdate is the 21st.  My sister is the 23rd and my brother 25th all the same week.

It was never an issue at all.  My twin and I always shared a party if that was a party year and my twin hated sharing a party with a passion.  As for our older sibling it never even mattered that their birthday's were close by.

The only thing is EVERYONE must have THEIR OWN CAKE!!!!!  Cannot stress that enough.

My 1st is 2 days before DH. 2nd and 3rd are two weeks apart. And 4th is in the same month as me, which will also be our new baby's birth month, and my wedding anniversary Tounge1.gif

All our occasions are grouped together. It's not a huge issue because we don't have big birthday parties and just start saving earlier for present money.

My sister brother and I were all born within a two week period, on the 25th, 31st and 2nd. My sister 2 years after me, my brother 3 years after that.

We had a party every 3 years, where we were allowed to invite friends and a big deal was made.

But, for every birthday, every year, we all got a present and we all had a cake. If grandparents and/or aunts and uncles were around, they'd pop in to celebrate on one or another day.

The only issue was as we got older and 'important' birthdays started falling in the same year (i.e. 13, 16, 18, 21). They tended to overlap in some form or another (although fortunately not more than 2 at a time, lol) but we were allowed to each have a party or at least invite one or two friends over: when I was 18 I had a huge party with all (perhaps 25, lol) of my friends, and my sister was allowed to have a sleep over the week before with 2 close girlfriends for her 16th.

DD#1 is on the 17th of September and DD#2 is the 27th of September, we have never had any issues, then again we have only had "family and close friends" type parties.

We have 3 birthdays within 8 days, it gets a bit hectic but that's life.  Some years the boys will do a combined party ( they're 2 years apart and a lot of their friends are also brothers, do that works well.  Other times I'll deliberately move them close, say have them after school 2 days in a row, I find it makes it easier to plan 2 at once personally.  Sometimes I move them both to November as December does get a buy hectic.  The only one who ever misses out on a party is me as I'm the third, but never bothers me.

My oldest and youngest are both in July, 2 days apart.

They have parties in alternate years, but it's still hard doing cakes/presents etc with only a day in between!

My sister and I were born a week (and 3 years) apart.  We used to have combined parties.
