After reading that article, I am proud to announce that I am the mother to
"Irish triplets" (all girls) born 1966,67 and 68, and I am from an Irish Catholic family
Interesting ... I had twins born in 1994, a baby born in 1995 & another baby in 1996. I wonder what that makes me (besides very, very tired at the time)?

I'm half Irish Catholic & raised Catholic too, lol.

Do you really think that the mother of a new born would begging her husband to have sex right away (probably against doctors orders)????? So, I bet that it is the father who is pushing to have sex right away.

It's typically fine to have sex 4-6 weeks after giving birth. The OP is talking about babies born within a year of each other. Unless there were serious complications, I doubt any doctor is ordering a woman to not have sex 4 months after giving birth.

My boys are 1 year and 2 weeks apart. If the second had been conceived 2.5 weeks earlier, they would have (probably) been born in the same year. It has nothing to do with being Irish, sleeping with multiple men (good grief), or someone pressuring someone else (though it could be, of course).

I don't even know what you mean by "Who is more likely to do this? Is it the mother's side or is it the father's side?" as it is obviously both the mother and father who are responsible for making the kids.

If they mean a calendar year (2018, 2019, 2020, etc.) It would be January and October, November or December OR February and November or December OR March and December (perhaps some slight differences for the second baby born prematurely)

If they mean any 12 month period, than it would be any month and nine, ten or eleven months later.

I was sort of being flip. I know that you can have sex 4 to 6 weeks after a birth.

But if the babies are only nine months apart, it is likely that the first postpartum sex was quite soon after the birth of the older child.

For someone who claims to have two daughters (one of whom is old enough to have a child herself) and two (or three?) more children on the way, you sure do seem to have a shaky understanding of human biology.

I think maybe it's time to stop feeding this particular troll.
