Most Nigerian Parents And Their Poor Child Spacing! A Must Read!!! by Islandlady(f): 4:36pm On Jun 22
I have always wanted to write on this particular article about the lack of enough gap or spacing of children by most Nigerian parents!

Few months back I was driving along that Abuja-suleja road and decided to stop by to buy some roasted plantain (boli) from a woman by the roadside! But I couldn't help notice her two baby boys crying profusely, she was holding onto one while the other was on the floor, initially I thought they were twins but after looking well, I noticed that the boy on the floor was a bit older! So I offered to help her console the older child because she was obviously frustrated and so that she can be faster with my plantain so I can hit the road back!

I carried the boy to console him and I was surprised by the way the boy clinged to me and immediately stopped crying, he was still a baby who needs his mother's attention and cuddling but all was cut short becos he now has a baby brother! I asked the women for their ages and she said the older was 2years old and his brother was 1year old! I was not really suprised but angry at the poor spacing between children by most of our Nigerian parents!

I mean if she has given them atleast a 3 to 4years age gap, the older brother will be old enough to console and play with his younger brother, while she will be able do her work without getting fraustrated and depriving the older baby of the care, attention and also stopping his breastfeeding at that early stage! This lack of child spacing harbits is very common among our parents!

I just want to urge our upcoming parents, new couples and singles hoping to get married someday and give birth to please practice a good child spacing of atleast 2-4years age gap, it has a lot of benefits and also give you time to take care of the child properly and also allowing the mothers body rest and become stronger in preparation for another child
Thanks for reading!

There is nothing like family planning failed them.

Condoms, pills and other family planning does not fail.
The people using it fail to use it properly or decided not to use it at all.

Oga. Don't speak so sure of what you've not researched.

I know people whom IUD failed them. Some after 5 years, one after 2 years and one after 7months.

They had to have the baby.

These are people close to me.

IUD I meant. Copper T.

Sorry about he typo.

IUD fails. The failure rate is around 25%.

The only 100% contraceptive is abstinence.

Nice thread. Unfortunately, there's little or nothing we can do about it, provided there's still poverty and illiteracy in the land.
While rich and average people are busy with their business and numerous side chick, the poor man have only his wife to bang as the only source of his pleasure, and doesn't understand a shit about family planning

We are five siblings...and we are all 3 yrs difference in age,

I think it all depends on the circumstances..

For example people are marrying late these days, and they have no time to space . They go into emergency reproduction..

If you can take care of the children and if it will pose any risk on the mother...why not
