If there is a possibility that the baby will stay in the womb for 12 months, how does waiting three months between husbands prove anything? It can always be the first one's baby which was just born much later...?

It doesn't happen often enough that we should regularly mandate anything more than a three month separation. However, we are not able to say a child is a Mamzer as it is possible that he stayed in the womb for 12 months.
All the best,
