Which was harder...

Was it harder to adjust to having 2 kids, 3 or 4? At what point was it not a big deal to bring a new baby home to where you were worried how the other kids would be.

  • I only have 2, but I think going from 2 to 3 will be the hardest. Right now hubby can deal with one and I can deal with the other....

  • Going from 2 to 3 was nothing. From 1 to 2 was harder.

  • 1 to 2 was the hardest. 2 to 3 was pretty easy, and 3 to 4 was a cake walk.

  • For me, none of the later babies was as hard as the first one.

  • I have two boys. When they first met they weren't sure about each other.. once the youngest (he's 20mths now) started walking they got along well. I didn't see the difference with having one or two kids, except more messes lol.

  • I really worried about bringing home a sibling for my firstborn. He had been an only child for almost 4 years and was very attached to me. Guess what, we're still close, and he and his sister are close. Going from two to three kids was no biggie but then again, the older two were 7 and 11 at the time.
