my son just turned 15 months old, and is constinitly in need of my undevided attention, if i stop looking at him for even a few minutes to cook dinner, as wat happened this evening, he freaks out and starts crying like hes in serious pain, then after just a few minutes of him being upset, it seems as if he perposly falls and trys to hurt himself just so ill stop what im doing and run to the rescue, am i an spoiling him without knowing it, im currently 15 weeks pregnant again, and i just dont have the energy nor the time to be at his beccing call every second of the day, im having a hard time managing the daily chores and still being able to spend as much time as i can with him, but it doesnt seem to be enough for him, he always seems to feel or act out as if i dont spend enough time with him, i just need some info on how to unspoil him, we dont have playdates or have any pets to help keep him occupied with a friend/playmate, and hes still to young to be able to go to daycare, i also dont have any mommy friends that could come over for coffee, im pretty much all by myself all day until dinner when the hubby gets home, then by that time im so over tired i dont want to even do anything, so is he, so we sit and eat in silence while our son usually screams becuase im not feeding him fast enough, also i would like to note that he only recently started holding his own bottle, but still refuses to feed himself unless its fingure good, then the hubby showers and goes to bed pretty much, and thats my night, i bath my son, feel him his snack, read him a story and he goes to bed, but he refuses to have a set bedtime, and refuses to sleep in his crib, he wont fall asleep anywhere else but his car seat, but i have myself refused the cry it out methon.
But i need some help, am i really spoiling him without knowing it? And if so, how can i change that? Please someone HELP!!
