Re: So I thought the third baby............

Have you looked into what you are eating? Maybe she is sensitive about what you eat? With my 1st boy I had to be very careful about what I ate while I was nursing him. Then he still had allergies gallore when we tried to feed him solids. He nursed solely the 1st 15m.
As for the hubbie... they can be so tricky to deal with eh? Just let him have space. The baby can definetly sense tension be it yours or his. He will come around. Most of all you have to stay calm and try not to get frustrated yourself. My needy child is just very sensitive to other peoples moods and an excess of sensory stimulations. Reacting with crying as a baby and then acting out when they got older. They have to have more hugs and calm, calm, calm! turn off the extra noise, and enjoy the ride because its gonna be wild. Always something new with a needy one.

My lily was the same way. My DH even said her scream hurts my ears. He never said it but I know he didnt start enjoying her until around 4 months. Have you read the happiest baby on the block? Tried swaddling? The only way my DH could hold my DD in the first few months was 1. she had to be swaddled and 2. he had to bounce her an exercise ball. He did that every night and put her to sleep that way. Of course she would wake up in an hour to want to nurse but it made him feel good.

I have 2 boys, but my DH is always complaining about Alex's crying and his curious nature. Although it is at higher degree than Donovan ever was, Donovan went through all the same stages. I just have to remind my DH of that. They tend to forget the older kids were like that at one time
