mom-of-4:  That sounds just like my girls were.  Unfortunately, I do think some babies are just like that.  It's not atypical for a 3 month old to have poor sleeping patterns, to startle themselves awake and to hate swaddling. (definitely no way to determine if a baby is ADD but I had that in the back of my head all the time since it runs in our family a lot.  My first restless baby is now a fairly calm, well mannered 4.5 year old with incredible focus and self...

I'm so sorry NSmomtobe.  ((hugs))   I haven't seen my allopathic doctor about this because conceiving is just an idea right now.  No need to see him.  He's a WONDERFUL doc who is a huge fan and supporter of natural birth which is why we stick with him, but he doesn't know much about vitamins and supplements.  I am fairly sure he would just say, "Take some folic acid."    There is definitely something more going on.  I had hyperemesis gravidarum both pregnancies which...
