  • That's silly. My son was/is so much laid back than my neice who is just 9-months older. My SIL tells me that she would have had 10 kids if they were all "easy" like my son.

    Every baby is different. Like adults, they have their own personality, quirks, and moods. Don't take any stock in that theory.

  • I think it depends on the baby. My son wasn't very fussy. And As far as my neice and nephew SHE was WAY worse than him... he never made a peep, very easy going baby, and my niece fussed and cried all of the time.

  • probably if they are circumized. I mean if they are hurting from the surgery it would make sense. Also they do remember so I would imagine that it makes them cranky. My boys are intact. They were happy babies just like my daughter

  • My son hardly fussed/fusses at all. It depends on the baby I would say.

  • If there is anything to that, I would think it would go the other way. My dd is high maintence and fussy! She has made me decide that she will be a only child!
