To anyone who has children 10 months apart.........Do you think that it would be harder to have twins or children this close together....Personally I think 10 months apart because they are both in diapers and both have diff needs....

Yes most definitely. I thought I was going to rip my hair outta my head the first month I brought my second home from the hospital. It got better since but it is still quite challenging at times

I have twin boys who are now 2 1/2 and actually it wasn't as hard as i thought it would be; they had the exact same routine from birth so it was just like having one baby, they would sleep/feed/cry at the same time. So in my opinion it would be harder to have them 10 months apart, at least for a little while anyway because you would need to work to get the second baby into a similar routine as the first, and like you said, their needs are different so it would be a bit more difficult to do than getting babies the same age into the same routine.

My kids are 11 months apart. At the time it was sometime very difficult. I kept saying to myself one of my mother-in-laws favorite quotes "this too shall pass". And it did. I can remember some of the things, but like most things in life, the details have faded. They are now 16 and 17 and are still very close.

My girls are 11 months apart..It deppends how you see it.. they are 2 and 3 yrs old right now and they are basically twins... in the begining I thought it was going to be hard but in the first 3 months of my second I guess were the hardest but like anyother new baby.. Cause the First one sleeps trought the night... Now I have a 2 and 3 yrs and a 3 month old.. It can be done now it's not easy.. But who said being a momma ever was?? Anyways you will always love all of ur babies no matter how many and how far!!!!
