Is having a second baby easier than going from 0-1 or 2-3? my daughter will be 4 when the second baby is born and she plays well by herself and is for the most part well behaved. the thing is i work full time and go to school part time and its all working out great right now, but will it after the second baby is born?

I don't have a third yet, but I have always been told that going from 1-2 is more difficult than 2-3. Although, your daughter is starting to be at the age where she can be a big help. My first two kids are 22 months apart, so although my 2 year old was able to help a tiny bit, I was still having to deal with terrible twos, etc.

It really does depend on the temerament of the baby. You may get one that will fit easily into your routine or it may be a fussy one. I was lucky that my first was my fussiest, the next 2 were easy and fit well into my routine.

No not necessarily any easier I find the most difficult was going from 1-2children vs. 2-3 or 3-4. However, my second was a very difficult baby. I was working full time had an 18mo old too.
