I am sooooo disappointed! I have always loved Christmas, and was so looking forward to celebrating my 10 week old's first ever Christmas with my DH and my mother, who travelled over from NZ. Well, he has had the worst day that I can remember - he pooed through his special Christmas outfit before his granny even arrived! Apart from about ten minutes at the start of the day where he was his beautiful, happy self, he cried and cried all day from terrible gas, and I can't for the life of me figure out what I could have eaten to cause it. I was even tempted to stop feeding him for a couple of days and try formula, because it is so heart wrenching to hear him cry like that.
I mean, he has cried ALL DAY. Thank god for the patience of my husband, who has rocked and cuddled him almost the whole day, because I was struggling to cope - I felt disappointed, and guilty, and responsible, and frustrated, and sad. Then my Mum was offering hints and advice, meaning well but she was kind of crowding me. I knew that he wouldn't remember anything of the day, but I was hoping for really lovely memories.
Anyway, I hope everyone else has had a wonderful day! Hopefully 2013 is a better one for us!
