I love my daughter more than anything in the world, but I am going insane.
She was born on Oct 10th and is now 11 months old.
she was the textbook angel up until she could sit up and actually move, then she became very independent and extremely active.
for the past 2 months I have been dealing with excessive crying...not pain or hunger cries more like this top of her lungs shriek. she does this pretty much all day every day to protest her unhappiness (if she is trying to get something she is not supposed to have and we move her, the screeching starts and wont end until she is in a toddler like temper tantrum.) we have tried to ignore the behavior thinking it will go away...nope this just makes her more angry and the screaming gets louder and louder.
I have no idea where my happy little girl went, but I need her back because I am going insane with this screaming all day every day. (oddly enough it seems to stop when we have company over. she is better behaved in public too. )
The doctor says there are no medical reasons for her to be crying like this. He says it might be a stage and to wait it out. I need other moms help, who have gone or are going through this to tell me how they handled it or are handling it???
