    Default inspired by other threads... who was "easier," #1 or #2?

    Just curious about this... if you have 2 kids, who was "easier"? By that I mean, less "high needs," more predictable in terms of temperment and schedule, easier to redirect, etc.

    DS#1 was waaaay easier. I mean, I have 2 great kids, don't get me wrong. But DS#2 was/is definitely more demanding. Plus, he has never been the champ sleeper that ds#1 was.

    As toddlers or as infants? As toddlers they are about the same- different challenges, but overall nothing too frustrating from either one. Very easy kids. Number 2 was a MUCH harder infant, though. Just thinking about that period still makes me wince. So much yelling! About nothing!

    DC#1 was definitely easier. Noticeably easier. He was so laid back, fell asleep easily, had no issues breastfeeding, etc. DC#2 had colic, and a very strong personality. She was definitely more challenging, and continues to be (she's now 9). They have both been very different experiences, in terms of parenting!

    DD1 was much easier. However, DD2 is a better sleeper.

    Until she turned 2, DD2 was quite a challenge. Now, at almost 4 and 2.5, they are both pretty easy.

    We thought DD had colic until DS was born! He has continued to be more challenging than she was. And that's why there won't be a #3 (barring any accidents, of course).

    #1 was by far a lot easier. #2 isn't bad just more winey (which drives me nuts) and needs a lot more attention than I remember #1 needing.

    You all are scaring me!!!!

    Some of the moms I know LRL have said that subsequent children are "easier" because you are more relaxed with them. This doesn't seem to hold true here, though! Maybe I should wait another year or ten!
