Please take him with you and go. He might just have to scream. I know it makes you anxious when he screams and I get it, but you need to go to this appointment.
Can you get a private car company? Sometimes they have car seats and they are a comparable price.
Going next week instead, managed to reschedule. Now I just have to figure out who to leave ds with.....
There's a baby Indian Myna bird outside the window of my office and it will NOT.SHUT.UP
Almost 4 month old DS has not slept since 7 am and it's nearly 12:30
So I spent 45 mins rocking ds to sleep & then 15 mins later dh came in saying there was a phone call for me, and woke ds up. And of course he couldn't resettle him as he has a migraine.
So I spent 30 mins trying to resettle with no luck, so I got him up. Had time to feed him & eat half a banana (the rest was bad) before he started losing the plot. Just spent an hour of nonstop rocking & he's finally back asleep.
I haven't had lunch, dh couldnt even do that for me after waking ds up. Ive eaten half a banana since 6am. Im trying not to fall asleep & my neck is killing me from holding ds for all his sleeps.
So over this. So ready to just walk out on ds & dh. I just want my old life back.

I'd pace our hallway rocking dd to sleep for 30 minutes at a time every couple of hours. I was losing my mind.
I don't blame you for feeling like you do. I remember thinking I understand why some women hurt themselves or their babies after being tortured with sleep deprivation and a screaming baby all day.
I got through it by just accepting that this won't last, she will change and it'd just temporary. I repeated this in my head every day. Luckily karitane/sleep school then helped us immensely.
Do you have a friend or family that can take care of your ds for a few hours here and then to give you respite?
