I know DS can sense the changes, but he's normally pretty mild tempered... changes tasks fairly easily, and while he doesn't sleep great (never has!), last night and today have been worse than normal. He has been nursing non-stop (so we will see how well nipple stimulation works..haha!), and had a complete meltdown long before it was time to actually take a nap. He will usually just get cranky when he's sleepy, but today was a complete disaster... It was my fault because I shouldn't have got into a "battle of wills" with him, but my lovely hormones are making it harder to deal constructively with him :( I ended up having a meltdown with him... nursed him to sleep, then he was up after 5 minutes crying again! Luckily he slept in the wrap (haven't had to wrap for sleeping purposes in awhile!). Tonight he had another meltdown before bed (and it wasn't an over-tired one). At first I thought maybe he's still trying to catch up to normalcy after Christmas, and he was a little sick yesterday. But, now I'm wondering if maybe he knows more than I do... maybe labor will happen sooner rather than later (although I'm not planning on it!). Or, it could just be he is reacting to me being more hormonal than normal... although that has been the last few weeks for me!
Anybody have any experience with sudden toddler behavior changes related to the birth of a new sibling? Or, are you noticing more restlessness these last few weeks?
