Our first child has severe reflux (still at 2hrs) & a cows milk intollerance/allergy. He also reacts to soy. We had a REALLY difficult time with sleep/settling etc from birth till around 14 months (when we got the dairy thing under control). We are ttc #2 & I'm wondering if it's likely to happen again. What have your experiences been?

We had 2 out of 2 for reflux and sleep issues. Everyone kept telling me that once you've had one really tough one, the next one was easy. The nurses at the QE2 (like tresillian) assured me that they often have repeat customers with subsequent babies and that once you've had two difficult babies, you're almost guaranteed to have a difficult #3.
So, while we wanted 4 kids, we've stopped at 2.

2/2 for us. Still going back for no. 3 though. I found 2nd time easier as I knew what was going on, had a good specialist etc.

2 for 2 I'm afraid. Stopping at two, cant do it again it takes too much out of me. You do have a lot more knowledge the second time around tho.

My two were night and day different! My firstborn was severe reflux, severe eczema, anaphylactic allergies and croupy (now asthmatic). She was a terrible sleeper - it was really really tough going . My second daughter was a dream - no reflux, no allergies, no eczema or asthma and a solid sleeper. 1 does not = 2 so have fun with conceiving, carrying and birthing your no. 2-to-be and don't worry about things until you need to!
