I have an 8 month old boy, who , to be honest, is controlling me!! thats not the way i planned it, nor want it to be.
But i am so exhausted i just dont know where to begin on getting it back.
When he was born i had a great routine, he ate, played and slept. never for long probably an hour (which i would do anything for now) he was a happy chappy, then somewhere along the way, it got lost...
He doesn't sleep during the day and is up 4-6 times a night, twice for a feed and the rest is just whinging.
I tend to go to him when he cries, i get so much conflicting advice, ''never let your child cry'' , ''let him cry'' i have just no idea what is best, all i know is that i cannot go on like this much longer, i am worn out and its a vicious circle, my boy feels how stressed i am, then he gets wound up, which in turn winds me up... i am always run down, at the moment i have swollen glands and i just cant seem to get ''well'' anymore.
He is fine with my hubby, its just me!!
I always knew how i wanted to be as a mum and this is NOT it!!!
my 8 MONTH OLD CHILD conrtrolls me!!!
I would appreciate any help or advice you have yo offer, or point me in the direction of somewhere or someone that can help.
thanks for taking the time to read this
