I have a 3 year-old daughter and a 5 month old baby boy. I'm blessed with kids of both gender but didn't realize how difficult it is to raise a baby boy. When she was a baby, my daughter was predictable and easy. When she cried, she was easily soothed, with the breast, with walks in the stroller, with the sling; and she would nap easily too, for the normal 1-2 hours. But my baby boy is fussy a lot, takes power naps since birth (unless swaddled in which he would sleep 1 hour thereabout, but now he's too big to be swaddled for fear of rolling over), and is a terrible feeder. He's always distracted and is fighting the breast all the time. I got mastitis because of the constant blocked ducts.
