I have a 19 month old and 8 month old twins. All boys. The twins are fraternal and premmature, so they are closer to 6 months.
I felt bonded with my toddler when he was 6 months, he was a somewhat difficult baby. I love him right away but didn't feel that instant bond I thought I would. Now he's the light of my life.
The twins were horribly difficult for the longest time. They are now starting to get a little easier. One is anyways, the other twin is still super fussy. He gets overstimulated quickly and whines all the time. It is a whine, not a pain or I need something cry. It is very hard to be patient with that whine. I am starting to enjoy them more, and do love them, but don't feel as close to them as I did to my toddler when he was their age. I fear I'm messing them up by not being super close to them yet, and wonder if I'll have as close a bond with them.
Anyone have difficulty bonding?
