Wondering if anyone has any advice for me! My pfb is 22 weeks and up till the last 3 wks has been a pretty much text book child. didn;t really cry unless reason, slept well, ebf fine. However the last few weeks she has been much less settled, doesn't seem happy to amuse herself for even a couple of mins, wont sleep so easily in the day (only seems to sleep if walking in pram) and so seems tired all day. She seems happy when I am holding playing with her but I really need to get some jobs done sometimes! She [whispers] still sleeps well at night but am worried this might change as def a sleep breeds sleep kind of mum! I think she might be teething but nothing showing except small dot on gum. Also feels like its been forever (i know its not) and don't know what to do! I tried to get her to nap in her cot this pm and she screamed blue murder which makes me want to cry too Any ideas? Experiences?
thats something to look forward to ! Sure enough for the last four nights she has started waking up at 5am and wont go back to sleep without a dummy. She wont fall asleep now in the day either without dummy unless in pram. Am worried that I am making things worse by relying more and more on dummy and not sure what to do! The joys of being a neurotic first time mum .
Do not worry about the dummy - DD had one from about five months to nine months and then chucked it at me one day and had nothing to do with it after that - as long as you use first stage (teeth friendly) dummies, it's fine. If they are still toting them when they get to a year you can always get Father Christmas to 'exchange' it overnight for a really cool toy!
