We've been having a bit of a rough time lately, so maybe someone in here can offer advice. Ruby is 4.5 months old. She got pneumonia about two weeks ago, and is now better, but since then she has been way fussier than usual. She is obviously tired, but fights sleep like crazy. I rock her, nurse her, put her down on her own and she fights all of it. She wakes up from her naps still sleepy and cranky. She doesn't sleep very much during the day, but she never has. She is gumming on everything but refuses teething toys. After the antibiotics, she went from being a twice a day pooper to once every two days, and her poor tummy is always bloated. She has a bit of a rash, but my mom had her in disposables on Saturday so I'm hoping that is what caused it, and not a food intolerance (she is getting donated breast milk and I cannot control what food was eaten). I just don't know what to do anymore. She was never a fussy, cranky baby before. She sleeps ok at night but daytime is a nightmare.
