  • My last baby is eight months old, and not so much baby her as much as I just enjoy her and appreciate the stages she goes through much more. I'm older now as well than when I had my first two, and I'm in a different spot in life, more mature (for the most part), and when I look at my older two and see how quickly the time has gone by, I cherish the time I have with her (and them) even more. And I do spoil her a bit. I tell my IL's - she's my last, I don't care. :) It's all in good humor though.

  • Well, we did, but she started acting like a little monster, so we are trying to be more careful! lol

  • I do now that we've made the decision. But up until we made the decision, he was treated just as cushy as the other 2...which was pretty cushy.

  • I, personally, don't but I never babied any of my kids. My 6mo gets treated the same way I treated the older 4.

  • I baby all my kids. They all claim I treat the others better then them so I guess Im doing a good job. My baby is 5, and she is more spoiled by her dad and grandparents then by me.

  • I did baby him for a while but stopped because he needs to learn to act his age and do things own his own. I use to carry him every where even though he could walk. He seems much happier being able to do things on his own instead of mommy doing everything for him. He's 18 months.

  • Well I only have one, so that doesn't apply to me.

  • I wouldn't go that far no, but as the youngest and a boy of 5 kids...he is bound to be treated as such anyway.
