After 3 weeks of being a dad of two kids I can say that number two if phenomenally easier than number one. For one simple reason: you don't check to make sure the second child is breathing every five minutes. For some reason SIDS seems to be the greatest fear for new parents from my small survey. SIDS actually only occurs in 0.05% of births. 500 out of a million. Miniscule odds. However, I checked my daughter's breathing all the time; especially at night. I haven't check my son's breathing once since he was born. You sleep a lot better and the stress level is much lower.

absolutely agree. one caveat is that for number one, there wasn't a two year old bringing his brother presents, like large books, stuffed animals, glasses of water, and the occasional thrown shoe.
