Were your kids easy or difficult as babies?
My daughter's have been difficult in their own ways. My first daughter (4 years) had a really hard time with nursing, and was really difficult to get to sleep at night and could only sleep at an incline. But at around 2 months everything was resolved, and she slept through the night.
We thought we got it easy with our second daughter (she is 4 months now) because right away she was a happy baby most of the time, a pro nurser, and really easy to get to sleep...but now at 4 months she still wakes every 2-3 hours at night. She also HATES car rides and will scream the whole time unless she is alseep or if I am sitting in the back seat. She is also only happy if I am the one holding her, so if I go to the store without her and she is awake, I have 30 minutes TOPS before she is screaming DH's ear off. Basically, I have to be in sight at all times. :/
Easy, and still is. I suppost that means I am in for it when she becomes a teenager.
At the time I thought he was difficult. After we took care of most of the issues at the chiropractor, it got better.
In hindsight it was just my own head and being a first time mom, that was difficult. He wasnt at all.
All things considered, they were pretty easy :) Nursing came easily, they both had a pleasant disposition, not picky eaters...neither was a particularly good sleeper, but they would easily go back to sleep most nights, at least!
My daughter wasn't easy, but she wasn't difficult either. She had her moments. Of course she was a picky eater,was picky about where she slept (her favorite sleeping places was her car seat,the swing that had the "white noise and music",the little glider thingy and my belly...the crib was too big and the bassinet was too small), I had to pump my milk because she couldn't latch on, but other than that she was "neutral". lol
My son was very easy. He wasn't picky at all, he was good about sleeping in his crib, he wake up early mornings and just look around grinning. The only time he was very fussy was when he was teething...he had four teeth coming out at the same time, then the next four, followed by the rest, whereas, his sister only "cut" two teeth, at a time.
