Well last night and today have been the total crap side of mother hood!!!
I love my daughter dearly but i'm so glad shes now asleep- i don't know how much more of her screaming i could handle! (bad mummy i know- but it is so grating) I know its not her fault but i am tired too....
I'll explain-(and it really is just a whinge so anyone who wants to stop reading now can.... I won't be offended i promise)
My little girl 5.5mths is teething- the little suckers are just showing there pearly heads- so she has a minor temp, bright red cheeks and one very sore mouth.
She has also recently given up the breast- she weaned herself so she is now on Formula fulltime- S26 gold! But now she is constipated??? How can i fix this??? I have been giving her extra water- but she only drinks 100-120mls of Formula 6 times a day- and i am worried that topping her up with water will fill her up- and then she wont take the formula--- any thoughts????
To top it all off she has a cold- I think- runny nose, coughing, sneezing etc...
Poor little darling, she is so sad- and even the "mummy cuddles" don't seem to be helping that much!!!! So i have panadoled her, wrapped her, given her a herbal calming mixture and put her to bed!!! Lets hope tonight goes better!!
Any suggestions on how to help are more than welcome!!
