Once you establish a routine its really not, especially if there is a decent age gap.

The first few weeks were a little rough, but once we got into a routine it really wasn't that bad. I really don't think it's harder having 2 than it is 1, I'm nervous about having 3 though because I'll really be outnumbered then. :lol:

It was for me at first since my second never slept and was really clingy. Not to mention, he was allergic to milk. After a few months and I got a routine down it became a lot easier. Now I have 3 and another one on the way. It's crazy but I'm managlng lol.

I thought it was going to be a lot harder than it was...we certainly had our moments, still do, but it is worth it :)

For me personally, it's really not that much different. I just had to learn how to balance my time between the two.

Going from 1 to 2 wasn't as hard as going from no kids to having kids IMO. I AM worried about going from 2 to 3 kids but mostly b/c my older two are 7.5 and 4.4

Our first two are 17 months apart and are now toddlers and we're 13 weeks with the third. It's not once you get everything down. I also grew up with a big family though so had that experience to help with my own.

No. In many ways it's easier especially as they get older: they have a built in play mate and coconspirator. You just get into a routine and it's actually quite easy.
