I'm a stay at home mom, my daughter is 10 months old now. I live with my parents.
I've noticed lately that whenever I try & pick her up to move her away from something she shouldn';t be playing with she goes "dead-weight" in my arms so I can't pick up and completely freaks out crying.
I'm not sure if it's when she is tired and needs a nap or if she is just pissed that I took he raway from it? When my parents watch her I know they do things differently, she is not allowed to watch TV until she is 2 but sometimes when I walk in the door I see her sitting in front of the TV and immediately move her and tell them it's not allowed and they know it.
IDK what could be making her act certain ways but I'd like to know what I can do/observe to understand her a bit more, if anyone has suggestions.
& I also feel as if sometimes I don't pay enough attention to her, she hates her bouncer toys or exersaucers (I guess she throws a small "fit" when I try and put her in) and her favorite things is my 100% attention playing with her on the floor. I would like to make her routine more structured.
Can the fact that her dad and I are not together, and rarely sees her(but occasionally) be confusing her as well?
Sometimes all this stuff just can make me feel like a terrible mom or Im just not doing good enough!! I feel very distracted or lazy a lot of the time and I think she knows that sometimes I just dont want to play?
