    Are you more of a newborn or toddler person?

    I know of a few friends who feel quite strongly towards being more of a newborn or toddler person - which are you?

    I chose toddler.
    I love how newborns sleep and you get so many cuddles.

    But, I love toddlers 'more' because they can play alone and understand you alot more.
    Can't wait til DD is about 2!

    I'm definitely a toddler and beyond person. TBH I find newborns pretty boring - as much as I adored my own I don't go all gooey cuddling anyone else's. I love the toddler + years because I feel its more when their little characters come out and the fun really begins when they start interacting so much more with the world around them.

    Newborns. Would be happy to miss the toddler phase completely. Happy again once they're about three and a half. Maybe it was just my experience with DD1 that scarred me though

    Toddler. So much fun. I find babies hard work. Lovely, but hard work.

    Toddler because they still need you but can be independent. Newborns although they sleep I am always so scared to 'break' them

    In betweenie - 3 months to 18 months I love all those little milestones - rolling walking talking first food etc

    We used to sing to dd around this age when she got out of the bath - she hated it so she learnt actions quite fast (nice distraction huh) I miss all that!!! And they still stay mostly clean lol

    Toddler! So fun and happy and I love seeing their little personalities develop and hearing about their world.

    I love both for different reasons. I find toddlerhood definitely more of a challenge but they are so cute. I reckon Ds at almost 4 is at a great age.
