I feel bad posting over here, but I am at wits end. I feel bad because I feel like a bad mom, I don't know what I did to my baby to make him so miserable.
So at his 6 wk appt the dr said he is hypersensitive. My first baby was very similar, but she was the first, so it didn't effect like it is now. Q has bouts/days where he screams wihtout reason other than he wants to be held. (I sound horrible I know) but I can't go to the bathroom, I can't cook, I can't clean, I can't spend time wiht my other kids. My 2 yr old runs around and ruins everything in my house, I can't speak for fear I might wake baby. Either I have screaming baby (blood curdling screams, not just a little whining, accompanied by gagging, spitting up, coughing, hyperventilating) or the 2 yr old rips everything to shreds, climns the countertops, pulls everything out of the overhead cabinets.
I am sitting her in tears because I don't know what to do. My husband is constantly mad at me because the baby screaming is my fault. I never get sleep. As much as I try to relax to get baby to relax (baby feeding off of my stress), I can't. My husband won't take the baby, if he does then when I come back (even for 5-10 minutes) baby is covered in spit up, screaming, and my husband is not paying attention because he wants to block out the noise, the baby needs to learn, etc.
I nearly feel like a prisoner. I love my baby and he is such a great baby, when he isn't screaming. But that I must hold him and entertain him all day, is too much. He doesn't sleep at night, literally I am not just saying that. I don't know what to do. any help or advice would be much appreciated.
They won't run any tests on him when I asked if it could be allergies. My brain no longer functions I am that sleep deprived, I wanted to say something but I totally forget.
