I am hoping some of you have experienced this type of behaviour before and would like to hear if it got better and if there's anything that can help.
DS has terrible tantrum like meltdown moments... I have a DD who's 2 and she's a dream compared to him.
I used to think it was related to him being born early and being away from me (in NICU) for two weeks, I have since given him lots of contact, co sleeping, holding, we breastfeed on demand... I have accepted that his personality is just sensitive a touch dramatic and very very sookie.
He's 8 months old and he sleeps less than my 2 yr old does because it's a russian roulette when putting him down, he feeds to sleep most times then I hold him till he's fully asleep but 3 times out of 5 he'll wake up when I attempt to put him down at which point it's the end of world and he's up for the next couple of hours. At night seems to be easier I can place him in his cot and he sleeps for about 3 hours then he wakes and feeds and then it's ON...
DH and sometimes myself are at a point where we are considering letting him cry it out, but I really really dont want to do that, and tbh I dont think it would work. He gets himself so worked up over nothing, honestly it has crossed my mind he might have some disorder. Maybe Im overreacting, maybe my first child is too balanced and tranquil and I dont know what Im talking about... I just wish I could calm him down and tell him its OK!
