2nd slept (much) better than 1st for the first 3m

Then it all went tits up and she was a nightmare until about 8-9m

1st was pretty crap from 2-4m but was great after that

Oops, that wasn't "quick", was it? blush

Both were awful but in different ways.

IdrisTheDragon Mon 15-Dec-08 13:22:08

Worse (lulled me into a false sense of security to start with though...)

2nd much better from the very 1st minute!

better, but I'm really sure had nothing to do with birth order - no.2 is just a cosy soul throughout, in every way

Much worse...

Don't even get me started about DB#4 who has yet to sleep through one single night at nearly 3 though...

Much worse

Similar, both woke for night feeds whilst BF but as soon as were weaned, they slept 12/13 hours a night without waking. Here's hoping DD3 is as good... wink <prays>

DD was bad but DS is even worse. I'm too chicken to have a DC3 blush

Worse.Much,much worse.In fact she was a blardy nightmare.

slim22 Mon 15-Dec-08 13:51:50

much worse

2nd better than 1st whilst in cot, but since she went into a bed (2 yrs ago) she wakes a touch too early for my liking.

worse sad

DS was ff and on GF routine, slept 12 hours a night from 12 weeks.

DD is bf and wakes up once or twice at 14 weeks. zzzzzzzzzzzzz...... Roll on weaning and cc I say.

Much much worse for much much longer, but now at nearly two sleeping pretty well.
