And I am SOOO close to losing it!!
: I seriously can't take anymore! My dd (7months old) was sick last week, she had fever and a little bit of diarrhea, she got over the fever on friday diarrhea on saturday. we took her to the doctor on friday and he said it looked like the flu!!
: uhm no...it is not the flu, i think it was a virus. Last week I was ok, I could handle her just fine because i knew she was really sick and i had all the patience in the world. but the last few days it has been horrible! i have no idea what is wrong with her. she is whiny and clingy and wants me alot, not her dad, last week she didnt care if it was me or her dad taking care of her. the doctor said that her ears are clear so i know its not that. She has also been sleeping horribly lately. she went from waking once a night to eat and right back to sleep to waking up EVERY hour! fighting me not to lay down and eat and taking 10-20minutes to go back to sleep. I am so exhausted which makes everything worse. Its hard for dh to help me because he goes to work at 5am and because she has been wanting me. I have NO ONE else to help me and i can't take this!
This morning she has been biting me hard! she has two teeth on bottom and four teeth on top, i guess they are coming out more. She has been biting anything she can get her mouth on, the teething tablets were not helping at all. i gave her a washrag with ice cube in it which only helped for a few minutes. so i gave her tylenol which only helped for about 20-30 minutes. i have tried to nurse her because she seems to want to nurse but she will only nurse for about a minute and then bite me hard while pulling the nipple out of her mouth! it hurts so bad, she has done this EVERY time she has nursed today so i am so afraid to let her nurse again
right now she is crying/screaming inconsolably. i am crying too cause i hate the parent that i'm turning into. i have been yelling at her today and it kills me to be so low to have to resort to yelling, but i dont know what else to do.i have even had to just beat the hell out of a pillow and my leg(i know i will have bruises tomorrow). i never suffered from ppd, i am just so frustruated. i want to help her but have no idea how to, i just....i dont know. if anyone has any advice or just btdt. thank you SOO much if you have made it this far. thanks...

thanks so much, we are both doing better now, my dh is being great and told me not to worry and that he will take her the whole night! yay! I mean i love my baby with all my heart but everyone has a breaking point yk?! I feel so horrible about the way i was acting this morning, i can't believe that i would let myself get like that. i can't wait for tonight when my dh can watch her and i can just relax!

yes this morning she did have an angry tone to me it seemed. i felt horrible not being able to help her out much. her birth was ok i guess, she was very peaceful and alert when she was born. i had to have a c/s because of a combination of things.
i do think that she is ready for more solids but i am just not sure what to give her really. she mostly eats and picks off of whatever we are eating. she is wanting more 'table' foods and not a lot of baby foods or anything with that consistency, she is wanting to take bites of food, like real bites. maybe i should give her more, i am guessing she is really starting to get ready for food


wirewendy what other things was your dc doing when you noticed they were ready for solid foods?

yes i am soo glad that i have a place to go to vent where i won't be judged and others will know what i am going through and not look at me like i am a horrible mother
i love this place and everyone here is always so supportive.
