#3 and #4

I agree having them after singletons has made it a little easier. I know what not to worry and stress about. It is hard to take care of everyone's needs, but at least I don't have the stressing about what is normal or not.

Although these are likely our last children, I can't help thinking a couple more kids one at a time would be a piece of cake, LOL

#3 & 4 here too and although we're only 3 weeks into it I kind of feel the same.

#'s 1 and 2 here, and so far my only. I'm afraid that one baby will seem like a piece of cake for us

Wait, so you live at my house? Ditto here. This pg, is also a singleton.

I hate when I have to pick which set to vote for! But I voted for the less popular one, #4 (and #5). I had twins with #1 (and #2) as well.

#3 and #4 here

In some ways it was easier having parented before, although my #1 was incredibly mellow and that spoiled me. #2 was "high needs" to balance out that experience. When we found out we were having twins I was just hoping that we didn't get two like my older son. So far we seem to get mellow girls and less mellow boys, at least as babies.

Number one and two here.

I had their sister when they were 21 months old.

I don't have a comparison, but I feel having the twins first was worlds easier than having a singleton and then twins.

#1 & 2 here.
At nearly 3-1/2 they are still *way* more work than the baby, though they do wake up at night less often than he does.

My best friend has a friend who had a 3 year old and they twins, then I had 3 year old twins then a baby & we each swear the other had it harder. Having some parenting experience under your belt may make it easier in some ways, but two newborns, even if they're still mellow, have a lot of needs & it seems to me that it must be a hard adjustment for the older child, especially if there's just one and s/he is young.

Mine are #2 & #3. My DD#1 is also a bit crazy, and so far my babies seem to be easier than she ever was-except in the car. But we'll see if this holds true when they start walking and then talking!

On another note- I always was curious and wanted to ask Heather-" Do you use fertility treatments or are you just that lucky to be blessed with 2 sets of twins? Honestly, I'm kinda jealous
post #32 of 47
She's just that lucky!

Mine are #1 and #2...my singleton was a lot more

work than the twins. I think it is all dependent on their personalities.

A quick intro.....I am Kat with 8 yr old b/g and 6.5 yr old g.

#3 and #4 I think if they were my first I would've quit bfing early on and just been a totally stressed out mom.

Yeah don't hold you're breath. My DS is a "very active child" to put it mildly (to put it accurately he's a daredevil, an escape artist and is very strong willed... Keeping him in the house requires chains and bolts because he figured out all the babyproofing we did). My twins are very needy and MORE active then he is. They don't walk much yet but boy do they climb :. Actually they are clones of my niece in looks and in temperament.... and she was the reason my SIL got her tubes tied . Also mine are 19 months apart. On the upshot they're thick as thieves now and it's a joy to watch them play together, but MAN was it hard for the first year!!!!

I put 2 and 3 but I had a 6 week angel just prior to their conception.

OH and having twins after a singleton probably saved me from alot of self doubt. I knew from my experience with my singleton that I wasn't messing up, I was just in a tough situation. I hope you're right though about it being easier... I'll let you know in a couple years when I get the gumption up to try for #4.

Mine are 4 and #5. Quick intro... I am Kelly with 18 month old b/g twins and 3 boy singletons before the twins. Finally got that only little girl! ;0)
