Last night was the worst night since October 15, 2008. Not once in this time has my baby been a baby that is just crying... and I hate saying just crying because I have to believe there is a reason!
Well yesterday, I pick my sweet angel baby up from the sitters... she always has a smile for mommy when I walk through the door. Our routine is as normal. We go home, she sits in the bouncy seat while I get dinner and other things done. At seven we sit down for a bottle and to watch American Idol... yes, she watches too... she likes the singing... especially Danny Gokey.
Then it happened, at 8 o'clock, someone took my sweet angel baby away and left in her spot a baby that cried for two hours and could not be soothed!! I tried everything. Hungry? Nope... even made another bottle because I thought "hmmmm, maybe she didn't get full the first time." Wet/Poopy??? Nope, just changed the ol' diaper!! It was a little warm yesterday so I thought she might be hot. Nope, cause I stripped her down to the diappy only and she was still crying. Gas??? It's possible and we got the mylicon drops just in case. I tried laying her on her belly with her head resting on the boobies (her favorite position) and patting her little butt, this usually works... Not this time! She didn't want her pacifier, she didn't want to be held, she didn't want to be laid down, she didn't want to be rocked... what the hell happened??? It finally got to the point where I had to put her in her swing and just walk away for about 10 minutes. I, of course, felt horrible for doing this~~ she is my baby after all and I hate hearing her cry. But I was on the verge of tears myself... Finally, about 10 she took 2 oz of formulay, her pacifier, and the belly boobie position and went to sleep and slept til one. Then it was up for another bottle but she went right back to sleep. Lucky for her because I couldn't!!
Then this morning, my sweet angel baby was there again! Ahhhhh, gotta love motherhood!
