please tell me it gets better - Page 2

post #21 of 25
My DS was the most laid back, easy baby on the face of the planet. Truly. Nothing upset him, I swear, and he'd have been absolutely perfect if he'd have slept. That was his only issue.

But Sadie, well, she's just like what you're describing. I don't know that she's high needs, but she is definitely more needy than DS was. And that's ok, they all have different personalities. But yeah, it's definitely tiring and draining for now.

I'm keeping myself going by reminding myself that one day, I really WILL want these days back. I'll want tiny little babies to snuggle, when there's nothing in the world in the middle of the night but me and my baby. Ha, well, sometimes it helps anyway.

crashing frpm, Sept.. but I went through the exact same thing with my LO at the exact same time. Get yourself a carrier that works for you and your LO (for me it wasn't the Moby like everyone said), and just know it will get better.

I was also fearing I had a "high-needs" baby too, I am happy to report that I have wonderful happy smiley giggley baby now at 3 months. I am sure you'll make it through this!

like everyone said: this too shall pass.

Thank you, mamas, for all of your kind and encouraging words! We were definitely going through a rough patch there for a few days, and we finally have a little break. I'm enjoying it while it lasts, but luckily he's been sleeping some more (even napping! it's a Christmas miracle) over the past 2 days, so I'm handling his meltdowns a little bit better. He's still not what I would describe as a mellow or easy-going baby (I don't expect him to be, at this point), but I've gotten some good smiles out of him today, so I'm feeling TONS better!

How can I not be head-over-heels about someone this cute?

Thanks again.

Yeah, it gets sort of better, but not for quite a while. It changes is how I look at it, and we have to enjoy the present for what it is because the future may or may not seem better when we're there. My six year old was a high needs infant and now he's a high needs kid. I was just reading that a fussy baby can actually be a sign of giftedness, if that's any consolation.
