Do girls sleep better than boys?

Dr. Scott Tomaine
Pediatrics 20 years experience
No: Gender has nothing to do with infant sleep. Bad sleep is usually caused by bad habits. Try to start a bedtime routine early and try to get your baby to fall asleep in the crib, by themselves.

Variable: It depends on where you live. In the United States most boys are circumcised. In my practice more than 80% are. Certain religions mandate circumcisions. Certain cultures encourage being uncircumcised.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Is it possible that my monochorionic diamniotic twins could be a boy and a girl?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sheila Goodman
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: Mono/di twins can only come from the same embryo, so they are always identical. They will also have a shared placenta which can have blood vessels that so from one placenta to the other. This can cause a condition called twin-to-twin transfusion which can result in severe problems for the babies. Only diamniotic dichorionic twins can be non-identical and boy/girl pairs.

Yes: Most women feel "quickening" or the baby moving for the first time between 15 and 20 weeks. It is not expected that you feel your baby move regularly until around 28 weeks.
