Every time I hold my daughter while rocking her to read a book she screams to get down...then I sit on the floor with her and read the book but she is off doing her own thing not even caring about it..should I continue to read her books even is she isn't paying attention? I admit I didn't read to her often as a baby..so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it..
Also, she won't ever let me cuddle her...every time I try to just hold her and love on her she cries..like she feels I'm trapping her. She doesn't like people holding her arms or legs either. When I try to show her how to clap or anything she gets really irritated and pulls her arms away. When she is upset and crying, she will let me love on her for a few minutes but only if I'm standing..if I sit she will cry harder.
Is this normal for a 15 month old to be doing?
Even when she was a little newborn she hated being swaddled..she would SCREAM. But as a newborn she loved being held. But now she will only let me hug her for a split second before trying to get away from me :(
