My LO will be 6 months on October 6th. Since turning 5 months she increased her feeds... she's exclusively breastfed. She won't try food. As much as I try.
And now she's screaming everytime I put her down during the day. If she goes on her playmat instant screaming as soon as I let go.
Same if I put her in her bouncer chair. Ive not even moved away from her and she is hysterical.
She used to sleep from 8 till 7. Had done for months. Now wakes up screaming at 5am.
I'm not coping with this now. It's been nearly a month and she's not calming down. I just want to drink a hot cup of tea and have 5 minutes.
And don't say about my partner he's not a hands on dad. Happy to leave LO to cry... and me.
Yup I am now at the crying stage. Feeling pathetic.
Poor you OP. Don’t cry, you sound like you’re doing your best in a very tricky situation. Could it be teething? My LO is a few weeks younger than yours and sleeping has also gone to pot, she was sleeping through the night from 2-4 months and now she wakes up 2-3 times per night! No advice, just wanted to say hang on in there, it’s probably just a phase. What’s your LO’s napping schedule like?
Do you have friends/family that can help so you get a rest? Your DH sounds awful, have you told him you’re struggling?
@Blueeyes91 I’ve only just seen this post. Has anything improved yet? Have you told your DP how you feel? Could you talk to your HV?
If she’s still crying and you’re still struggling, give Cry-sis a call. The helpline is open until 10pm
Come back and let’s us know how you are this week @Blueeyes91
