2022.01.25 17:19 chaos--master We're both just clinging on
My daughter was born NYE and her first week she had a hell of a time with stomach cramps. Now, even without the cramps (her stomach doesn't feel overly firm as it did before), she is still inconsolable half the time. She screams for over an hour, refusing to even try and sleep no matter what we do, then she closes her eyes for 10 minutes before starting over again.
I've read so many blogs and articles about babies being overtired that go through things like having a sleep routine, put hey down sleepy but not asleep, using a swaddle, etc. But absolutely nothing works. It's the roll of a die if she will be screaming for another full hour or finally asleep, and even then, they might not last because it's already been 3 hours since her last feed but she's been screaming the entire time. I say roll of a die and not a coin toss because it sure as shit isn't 50:50, it's weighted on the side of screaming.
If anything, I've got it easy. I have to work during the day so I don't have to find ways to handle her 24 hours a day, but we're both just clinging to the edge right now.
We can't even turn to friends or family as we moved to another county during the pandemic and we've not had chance to make new friends and family are a 2+ hour flight away, even if they can get time to visit.
Not really sure what I'm looking for in posting this, reassurance that it gets better doesn't calm a screaming infant. I guess advice from anyone who has gone through the same? Anything beyond just cuddle her or whatever. I'm a planning and organising kinda guy, having actionable things to try gives me inner peace. Maybe there is no inner peace to be had any more... I guess rant/off my chest/unsure cry for help done.
