While I slept less with my twins, they were WAY easier to deal with than my fourth baby. She had to be held constantly, cried constantly, nursed constantly. I mean, I don't know that I was able to take a shower or eat without her screaming for the first six months of her life. I did everything with one arm. She would ONLY nap if she was on my back (and was NOT a light child!). It was really, really hard.I prayed through my entire pregnancy with the babies that I wouldnt get two just like her. And while with the twins there is sheer numbers to be considered, they were WAAAAAAY more laid back personality wise. Rarely cried for anything other than "feed me, change me, rock me" type stuff. They would both hang in a swing for awhile. They napped well. It was challenging but totally doable.
oh my gosh, I could totally have written that post but the one who was my handful was my first. Oh....yes. Totally.
