Does anyone have a High Needs Baby?!?

That was a normal, active baby, in my experience. My eldest was the same way, my younger didn't want to be touched or interacted with at all.
At 3.5 months, she's still looking for A LOT of tactile contact, and that's not unusual.

Absolutely... I agree with that. Im not referring to "high maintenance"... I am referring to the reference "high needs" because she isnt colic. My lactation consultant used this term with me the other day and it wasn't until I researched it that it made sense. My 3 1/2 month old always wants tk be held. The second I put her own she screams... she hates being put in her stroller for walks, shed rather be in my wrap and be attached to me for walks, she gets bored of any one activity super quick... she needs constant stimulation. We have several toys and play mats as well as a jumper that I tried yesterday. She would rather be forward facing in my moby wrap than anything else. I just didn't know of any moms with similar babies as well as any toys/activities that helped them with their babies. I feel like in the evenings especially we try everything. We put music on and put her in the corner of the couch so she can see and sing and play with instruments, dance for her, just to keep her content. Thanks.
