Hugs mamas...sounds like this has been a tough week all round! Hope nursing, sleeping, eating, rolling, husbands, partners, housing, and weather sort themselves out FAST and in such a way as to keep everyone happy/healthy/sane.
I'm having a hard week. Joseph is simply not happy with anyone other than DH or myself. Period. Not even for a few minutes. He screams anytime anyone else holds him for any amount of time. Sometimes he starts screaming if someone looks at him. He doesn't mind complete strangers-it's the people we see a lot of that he screams for. It's so hard for me since I do occasionally need a break but don't feel like I can or should leave him since he is so unhappy with others. Add that to his constant need for touch and I'm wiped out and often very frustrated. : I just don't know what to do. And everyone I see on a day to day basis is not very supportive-I'm getting lots of CIO suggestions and others commenting that we've "caused" him to be so needy by wearing/carrying him all the time and not leaving him with others.
And to top it off he has spit up on me no less than a dozen times today. We're both on our 3rd outfit of the day and we both need to change again since all I can smell sitting here is spit up. I'm not finding this too amusing but Joseph thinks its hilarious-he keeps giggling. That's my one comfort-when I think I'm almost to the end of my rope he giggles or grins and it is so cute I temporarily forget how frustrated I am.
And, does anyone have suggestions on how to bleach diapers in the sun without a clothes line in a very windy area? My drying rack isn't sturdy enough but we can't put up a clothes line as it is in violation of our lease.
