So there's hope yet! DD is a gorgeous baby and I love her to bits, but if there were two of her I think I'd be curled up in a corner somewhere wondering where my sanity went!
So different. DS1 is very active, outgoing, easily persuaded, where as DS2 is easygoing, placid, quiet and can be extremely stubborn.
Our boys have the same blonde hair and similar features. Quite different in personalities though. Ds1 is very gentle but ds2 is quite rough, has no fear. Ds1 is a very lean build although eats really well but always battled to gain weight. Ds2 also eat well but it shows.
My boys are very different in personality, but neither slept well til 2yo!
DD1 was a dream baby from birth until about 2 months when she started teething- would sleep 8+ hours straight a night, very content, happy baby. Then turned into the devil and not much has changed since. She is 4.5 now.
DD2 was the opposite. She woke every hour to hour and a half for the first 6 weeks, but was sleeping 16+ hours straight by 8 weeks and has continued like that since. She is a easy going little girl now.
Both DD's are completely different. Pregnancy with both girls were different. Labours different. Nothing about my two girls are the same.
DD1 was a difficult baby, rarely slept, spent alot of time crying and now is a demanding bossy child. She generally is hard but has her good moments to.
DD2 is unbelieveably easy she sleeps so well and is a 'dream baby'.
The girls are so different in personality they even look completely different (both from same father).
But because of how hard dd1 was/is we did not even think about having another child till she toilet trained and was more independant. I honestly was scared of a dd1 clone lol.
I think what has made a huge difference is that I am more relaxed with dd2 Ive experienced it all with DD1 and I can jump straight onto whatever is wrong with dd1.
They look the same, but are completely different
DS (my first child) is completely different with DD. DS is easy to feed, eat anyhing basically, has no separation anxiety, BAD sleeper (almost 5 yrs old but still wakes up 2 or 3 times a night every single night). DS is friendly with everyone, happy to be with anyone.
My DD is super FUSSY eater, has separation anxiety although lately hasnt been bad, good sleeper (we take her to her bedroom, and said"time to sleep stay for 5-10 mins and she sleeps immediately, most nights till morning). She is very cautious with strangers, is not very friendly and gets frustrated really easy.
Oh and with DS I didnt have mornng sickness throughout the pregnancy and I had good appetite and ate alot lol..with DD I had morning sickness for 7 months.
