HELP!!! my daugher is 1 month and 2 weeks old.
So my daughter has delicously started getting chubbier but a week ago I noticed a fowl oder coming from her, I bathed her imediatly but the smell stayed, while dressing her she turned her head in such an angle that i saw green on her neck, like cream I guess when I whiped it off with my finger SHE freaked out, her eyes opened wide (O_O) and when I tried to keep cleaning she began to cry histerically. Now on either side of her neck and right under her chin there is a loong and fat red spot and plus the smelly stuff. I'm always trying to clean her neck but her chin is hard to get to. Somebody PLEASE EXPLAIN ME THIS!!!!
I don't know what the first stages of teething looks like, but on the top right corner of her gums it appears like a chomping tooth....but she's just 1 month!! is this possible or is it that I'm seeing things???
CRAWLING OR TURNING OVER:
At around the same time she began lifting her head she began pushing down with her legs, which just about KILLS ME because when burping her she begins to push down right on my C-Section scar. Or holding her up in the air while sitting if I bring her foot in contact with my leg she will strech her legs and try to stand, which I won't let her do because that could harm her feet...remember...she's just 1 month!! Anyhoot my mom and BF freaked out the first time they saw her do that. They said those are signs of her soon to be crawling or turning over while laying down... is this true? at this age? did THAT happen to you're kids when they began to crawl or turn over???
Around 3 weeks after leaving the hospital holding my daughter she started lifting her head to look at me, and the older generation of my family FREAKED my hand was behind her head at all times, yet she kept doing it, and throwing her head back freaking me out. I don't really understand why everyone freaks out every time she does it, even when I lay her on her stomach she lifts her head to look around. Is it because it is to early to be doing this?
PLEASE HELP >.
