DS has stopped drinking his formula altogether.
So, we have cut back his food, in hope he would be more interested in his formula.
This was obviously a wrong move as he is no longer sleeping through the night and wont self settle anymore - actually he wont fall asleep at all he just cries. So im stuck home 24/7 because of him.
My DD was a diffucult baby, but ds has reached new levels of diffucult.
Ive lied to most people sayng he's a wonderful easy baby "i deserved an easy one after dd!"...not the case at all. I didnt want people thinking..."she's having trouble again, why did she fall preg so soon after dd?!?!"...i know thats what most pople i know will think or say about me. They have said it about others.
We cant get out of the house without messing up "his" routine. If we go out before he is due for a nap (during his awake time) we cant get him to sleep when we come home.
He cries constantly from 7am when he has his first bottle untill 8am when i give him breakfast. He's happy for 45mins then starts to grizzle so he goes to bed usually with no hassles at 9.20am. Today he hasnt slept, he's cried the whole morning probably because he didnt drink his bottle at 7am, after that, i only offered half his usual amount of food. I offered the bottle before i put him down again but it was a no go. Ive nursed, cuddled, rocked spent all my ****ing morning with him and nothing is working. My 2 yr old has been left to fend for herself from 8-10am. It shouldnt be like this.
Most people conplain about the baby not getting enough of their time/attention. My poor toddler never gets my 100% attention, ever. Yet she doesnt complain.
Im letting him cry it out. Ive dosed him up on panadol. Im at my wits end and i feel like im just about to explode if he doesnt stop screaming.
Im on my own, no one around to give me a break except call DH and tell him to get the **** home, im not coping.
I thought he was teething, but he's showing no signs, his gums are soft. My dd didnt get a tooth untill 11months old, so im not expecting teething anytime soon with him.
ETA: he cried it out for an hour before he fell asleep from exhaustion. Im not in support of CIO at all. But it was my last resort this morning.
