Re: What is fourth baby like?

Our 4th fit very easily into our family. My third wasn't difficult, but just an active boy. My fourth is very calm and quiet and sensitive. FTR, my first baby was extremely easy, second was a hellion.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.

Re: What is fourth baby like?

all have mine have been different and some more "fussy" even though they were lower in the birth order.

#4 would never take a bottle of expressed BM so that was more difficult but now he is so easy-going

adding another wasn't hard it was the type he was as a baby. now, it's easier & he is 2.5.

My first three were boys. They were super easy babies. #1 was and still is very independent and strong willed but still they were all good babies.
#4 was a girl and she is just like a first born! She is fiesty and independent and a leader. She was my most high maintenance baby yet! She was a good baby, but more "work" than my others.

Now, #5, on the other hand...every mama in the world needs a baby like her! When she was a baby, I would sometimes feel sorry for her because she required so little of our time and attention. Feed her, change her, and lay her down, she was happy!

Re: What is fourth baby like?

My 4th is a dream baby. She started sleeping through the night at two weeks. I didn't even think that was possible until I had her. She's laid back and easy going. She just happy to be here.

My babies all got easier as I had more. # 1 was a colicky mess. I remember thinking something was wrong with #2 because he would nurse and then so straight back to sleep. With #1 I had to swaddle, bounce, and shush for 20 minutes to get her to go back to sleep. I'm glad she was my first because I didn't know any better.
