I think I've bonded FASTER with my daughter. I think it's a combination of things. I'm older and more motherly, my son was a NICU baby, and I am able to EBF my daughter when I couldn't with my son. She is also the last baby we will have. Ds and I have a very special connection because he's my little man and a total mama's boy, but it took a minute for that bond to be established. There is something totally unique and special about the bond you have with your little boy. I think I feel more pressure with my daughter, because it up to me to show her how to be a woman, ya know?

I have 3 sons, and my middle child is definitely more of a mama's boy. I think we have a stronger connection because a week after he was born, his dad (my ex-husband) went to jail, so it was just me and my older 2 boys for an entire year. I had that whole first baby year to just be with him and go through all those "firsts" by myself. My youngest is only 11 months though, so time will tell... right now he's ridiculously attached to me (he only loves me for my boobies, lol) but I have a feeling he'll be a daddy's boy. He already loves being outside, screams if we try to bring him in, loves throwing a baseball around...
