My youngest is my favorite

So when I was pregnant with my youngest, I was worried I wouldn't love him as much as my other children. I wanted a girl sooooo bad and I was kinda depressed when I found out he was a boy. I literally cried for a couple of weeks.

But then he was born. My first reaction was how perfect he was. We bonded instantly, then he latched on and started nursing within a few minutes of being born.

Now he's almost three months old and I can just tell that we have a deeper bond than my other kids. I mean I still love them, but I put his needs first.

I would rather spend all day holding him even when he's sleeping than playing with my other kids. We have a deeper bond than I did with my other, probably because I'm breastfeeding.

Not to mention he is our only child that was planned and the only one we have together. DH has a child from a previous relationship with someone he can't stand ( because she was nothing more than an incubator) and I have a DS from my first marriage.

That is sad. Your other children can pick up on these things.

I love my other kids, I just favor my youngest. Like if my oldest wants something to eat but I'm busy with the baby I make him wait. I get my youngest out of the car first.

I just out him first.


There was a time that I always put my oldest first, but now the tides have changed

I feel terrible for your other children. Kids pick up on those things and it sticks with them for life.

Did you post planning on NOT getting opinions?

It IS sad. It IS unfair. Feeling a certain way is one thing - acting on it all the time is another thing entirely.

Stop it. Before you screw up those other kids.

I don't see it as being unfair to my kids though. They were once babies too.

I never said I didn't love them, I just have a better bond with my youngest
