Can the onset of AF cause my nursling to be fussy?
DH and I noticed last month that DS (10 Mo.) was super fussy about a week-and-a-half prior to AF's arrival. Only when he goes down, which is TOTALLY out of character for him. He is usually glad to go to bed (I know, I am lucky in that respect!) We waited and waited last month, nearly a week, and then I gave in and took him to the Dr. thinking he had an ear infrction, even though our guts told us it wasn't illness-related. Sure enough- clean bill of health. About two days later fussiness subsided and AF arrived.
Could this be hormones? I notice that I get a little sleepless at about the same time in my cycle. I am also on the mini-pill. This is new- AF only returned 2 months ago.
WHAT IS GOING ON?!?! He is literally waking up every 2 hours, when he normally sleeps for 9+... needless to say he is a cranky pants.
Sleepless in Annapolis!
