  • No, you're not crazy! I've heard the jump from 1 to 2 can be hard and if you are worried about "high maintenence baby" again, I think it's totally normal! My SIL had such an awful time being pregnant and with the labor that she said she never wanted to do it again, even though the next time around might not have been that way-she didn't want to chance it.

    My MIL had 2 boys, 13 months apart, and she said she LOVED having her boys and wouldn't have changed it for the world.

    Oh, and this IS crazy: sometimes I miss my cute prego belly and my cute prego clothes that I want to to be prego again just so I can be all cute again....and K is only 5 months old! Uh,hello, that would be a no!

  • I think all babies by definition are high maintenance. DD had reflux until she was about a year and still has horrible skin allergies among other things (I think we should buy stock in lotion and aquaphor). She screamed almost non-stop for about a month after we came home from the hospital and for that same month I had to wake her every 2-3 hours to feed her because of jaundice and weight loss-I think the waking her up is what caused her to scream-by the way-I know I screamed because of it.

    If I only thought about that, I would never want another one, but I think about all of the good things and that makes it all worth it to me.

  • You are not crazy. Maybe it's just not time to add another addition to your family. Wait a while and then see how you feel about it.

    You might decide later on that you want to have a second child, even if it means you have 2 boys! It sounds like it's just not time, yet!

  • it's totally normal to feel that way, my son was so high maintainance, I said that was it I'm never having another one, lol....
    That was 7 years ago, now after such a big gap, we're finding it really difficult ttc. I may be wrong, but I think it's cos we've waited so long. My advice is to just go for it. I wish I did
