  • I have 3 kids, youngest a teen oldest two in their twenties. Nope don't have a favorite since second one was born. Before i became pregnant with my second baby I fussed and worried how could I love a second baby we wanted to try for. As soon as I became pregnant each time second and third that was taken care of.

    Sometimes some of my kids have done better personality wise than other of my kids but my love is equal.

  • I don't, but I pretty much have a toddler and a preschooler. I think that you will naturally have an affinity for one child, due to their age and how they interact with you at some point in their lives. You relate differently to each of your children. I don't love them more or less, but I love them and their unique traits. I prefer my baby's cuddliness to my preschooler's need for space, for example. But I respect this need of hers, too.

  • I don't think it's a favorite...but my first born just holds a special place in my heart just because she's what made me become a mom. But I don't treat her any differently than my other 3 beautiful children. they all have special things and characteristics about them that I love! I love all my kids!

  •  I have a stronger  connection  with my son than I do with my daughters. I don't love him more, but we understand one another on a deeper level for some reason.
