Reincarnation in same family Agree: 2 Disagree: 1
It is an infrequent occurrence that a child would die, go back to heaven, and then be reincarnated back into the same family. If it did occur, that spirit returning a second time would have the benefits of the experiences that the family went through in losing a child.
In my practice I rarely see souls repeating the same genetic choices in past lives because this would inhibit growth and opportunity.

A soul who agrees to take the body of a baby who dies at a very young age can reincarnate again very quickly, and it would have been agreed beforehand...so if the first life is to teach other souls a life lesson, then the second life may be agreed at the same time...When babies die very young the soul can reincarnate in the same family, or nearby. Because the lesson of the first, short life is for the parents, the soul may reincarnate as another relative of the same family, to be in the same environment to continue helping the parents with their life's lesson. It's not a lesson for themselves but for others....a swift return might also be made if a soul needed to be in a similar timeframe for a particular lesson, or with particular souls who were already incarnated.

When a mother loses her child for whatever reason, I have found the odds are quite high that the soul of this baby will return again to the same mother with her next child.
