The baby is either sleeping, nursing or crying today..these are the three options. I don’t know if it’s another growth spurt or what is going on but she is soooo fussy. I am exausted, as I didn’t get my nap today and so her cries are really really upsetting me, thank goodness for wonderful husbands who take calm the baby shifts. She is easy to calm, but then her brain catches up and realises we have managed to calm her and she get’s angry again.
She want’s to suck and suck and suck, but keep’s spitting the breast out, will not take a pacifier, and get’s frustrated cause her motor skills are not advanced enough yet that she can purposely keep her fist in her mouth.
When I am nursing and when she is sleeping, I look at her with love and admiration and a full heart, but being this exausted and having her so fussy is hard on the nerves. Makes me wanna cry. Thank goodness we have had many many more good days, so I know this to shall pass.
