No doubt some of you will think I'm wacky for being concerned, but I am nonetheless. Saying some babes are just not cuddly is really not what I'm looking for here.
My DD loved to be held, nursed great, etc until she was around a month old. Now, she acts totally stressed out if you hold her in any position and will calm down if she's put down. The other thing I noticed is she doesn't like to be touched, tickled, etc. She does like her head rubbed, but that seems to be all. Her eye contact is awesome unless I'm holding her, then she won't look at me at all.
She gags all the time. She's also very fickle about nursing and will pop off and on and fuss constantly (not OALD, low supply or reflux, etc causing it). She's not really gaining weight well anymore. My LC said I may want to have her evaluated for oral sensory.
I'm wondering if this may be a sensory issue? If so, I'd sure like to get working on it asap. I'm very sensory, as is my son and it doesn't serve us well.
She's almost 10 weeks.
What do you mamas think?
