This past week or so she has not been her self. I can't figure out what is wrong! It feels like I am loosing it.
She has been extremely fussy, always wanting my attention, can't be left alone, wants to be help 24/7, always wants to eat, and always sleepy! I don't know what it is. She sleeps through the night which is amazing..and goes down rather easy, but during the day she isn't her self.
She will be 4 months on Dec.30.2012. Here are some things I think might be wrong:
1. Is she staying full? Maybe formula isn't doing it? Each bottle she has is usually between 5-6 ounces. At night time I add rice. Do you think its time to start feeding her some baby food/rice during the day to keep her full? It feels like I am feeding her every two hours and maybe that's why she is so fussy?
2. Is it a phase?
3. Growth spurt? Maybe, but it doesn't explain the constant need for attention. I used to be able to lay her on the living room floor with a play mat and go do dishes..now I'm lucky if I get that done.
My house has not been clean for 2 weeks! I still have laundry in the back from over a week ago! It's driving me crazy!
I also wanted to know if any of your kids have ever been constantly sleepy. It seems the only thing that makes her happy is sleeping and eating. Maybe it is a growth spurt? I don't know. Like I said..I think we are doing well for first time parents, but these last 2 weeks or so had thrown me for a loop!
Please,throw out some ideas!
Ps: I can't believe she is going to be four months!
