Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately.
I've been a little preoccupied by ...
a screaming baby.
This is not a joke. I am losing my mind.
This is what he looks like ... every second that he is awake.
And he's awake A LOT. He won't sleep at all during the day. I'll feed him and he'll be fussy for a minute afterwards, I'll put him down for a nap ... he'll sleep for about 20-30 minutes and then wake up screaming only to cry until his next feeding.
I constantly feel like I am doing something wrong.
I don't even think he's been conditioned to cry to be held because even when I hold him he keeps crying and fussing.
And so the cycle continues
crying and won't sleep = won't eat well = more crying = gets himself overstimulated by crying = more crying
People say that they grow out of this. I might go crazy first.
I called the dr. and described his symptoms and the prescribed him Zantac for reflux.
He's only had 2 doses, but he's crying the same.
He is literally NEVER content.
Any advice from someone who has gone through this?
Please email me if you have any thoughts / words of encouragement
