Hi I am a mother of 3 with one on the way, with my youngest daughter we did not have a good infant experience! She Cried pretty much all the time! She would start crying in the middle of the night and no matter what we did she would still cry for at least six hours of the night! during the day was no different , if she was not sleeping she was crying!
Now i hate to compare but My first two to my youngest! although my first two had a different father than the third I did nothing Different! They alll breast fed same sleeping schedule ect...
My third child ( my little girl Elizabeth) was quite the handful from the begining , even the nurse's at the hospital would go on about how shes gonna be a handful because of her excessive screaming in the hospital... one of the nurses even wheeled her out of my room for a little bit so i could get some sleep!
It went on like this for the first six months of her life! I dont know how my husband and I made it through!
I am praying that my fourth will not be like this although i cant control how my children will turn out ! i am truly hoping there is something out there i can do to help prevent another screaming baby .. on top of already having 3 children i couldnt imagine going through that again! I do understand babies cry that is normal! whats not normal is when they scream and no matter what you do ie, baths, car rides, rocking, feeding, burping, gas drops ect....... my oldest at the time was in preschool and i use to keep her home from school sometimes because the baby screams kept her up all night.. !
I will never forget the first time my mother in law stayed the night she was in disbelief at not only how long she screamed but how loud she got! The doctor diagnosed her with colic but im still conviced there was more at hand!! I watched what i ate for the sake of my breast milk .. I mean the only thing i can figure is it was something i ate when i was pregnante maybe too much of ? or not enough of?
Im only four weeks along but i want to get started on a healthy eating habit asap!
