Do you prefer your newborns/babies or the toddler or the kid age the best?

Now, before anyone takes this wrong, I know we all love all of our children, no matter what age and stage they are. But of all the ages/stages, which is the one you prefer the most?

  • I freakin' LOVE newborns.. My baby is 18 months now, and shes great.. but just the way i could hold my girls forever when they couldn't sit up and get away.. and how they nestled right into me.. made my heart get all fuzzy.. and how i could wrap my hands all the way around their chests and when they stretched they puckered their little lips out and i'd kiss them. and that new baby feeling.. man i loved it.. i'm a baby freak, lol

  • I'll be 100% honest, I love it from day one to age 12 months. That's my preferred age. I love the newborn, little baby age. I love the cuddling and snuggling, the breastfeeding, the cuteness....I would seriously keep all my children under a year of age if I could.

    Past that, I enjoy them as old as I can get them. My 6 year old is starting to be independent and I like that. But my 2 year old....I'll tell you what, I'd like to put her back where I found her sometimes.

  • I was actually thinking about this today, and it seems an impossble choice.

    On the one hand, when my daughter was a newborn/small baby - things were very peaceful, and she would spend most of her time nursing or asleep on my chest - which was so lovely.

    And on the other hand, she's now a toddler (16 months) who is very loud, understands what I'm saying, she can communicate and play with me - "help" me when I clean, make me laugh a million times a day.

    Impossible choice... good question!

  • I like about age one to age 5...I really don't enjoy the raw boobs and sleeplessness that comes with the newborn phase...and then, after subbing in elementary schools, 5-13 or so just bothers me...lol. I like high school age though!
