I just had a baby 4 weeks ago and I was expecting him to act out, but it is kind of out of control for me sometimes. As an HSP there is only so much I can handle. When he gets upset he starts screaming, throwing things, or hitting the sofa. Instead of putting him in timeout I give him the option to go to his room until he's done.
He's also continually doing things that he knows he is not supposed to do ie opening doors and getting utensils from the kitchen (he has very large hands and none of the childproofing we've done seems to work) and now I'm really concerned about the danger that his 2 yo sister can get into as well.
I find that by afternoon I'm screaming and I hate screaming. I'm just really worried that it's going to spiral out of control.
I hope this is coherent...not getting much sleep these days with the new baby! I just need some help.
