With all the other fussy babies, is anyone on the total elimination diet?
I'm almost ready to try, just trying to psych myself up for at least two weeks of squash, sweet potatoes, rice and pears
none of which I particularly dislike, I just have to talk myself into it.
DS1 was a very regular pooper. This one? Not so much. He skipped two days earlier this week and is now on 2.5 days. And he's not too happy when he doesn't poop. He sleeps good once he's out and has content awake times, I just feel bad for him when he's clearly uncomfortable.
And he certainly will not take a soother. Tried a second kind today, he'd take it for DH for about a minute at a time. With me, he just gets very mad about it. So much for a shortcut!
DH is starting to feel left out and worried that we have an overly attached child.
Which is in turn worrying me. Blech! It's not that big of a deal, mind you I may feel a little stressed if he doesn't take a bottle (haven't tried yet) because there are a couple times I would like to leave him for a few hours this summer but I am not comfortable leaving him unless he takes a bottle.
When DH and I were dating, his brother had us babysit their kids once when our neice was a couple weeks old. She never took a bottle, *ever* and spent the entire 3 hours screaming despite us calling them and telling them they needed to come home. It was traumatic and I swear I'll never do that with my kids lol!
