I’ve had a rough time of it with this little guy and that’s no secret. He is 100% breastfeed. No formula!(Does it solid food but no other liquids), co-sleeping, momma carried, allergy having, spoiled little guy. Now I know most of you are saying, “Yah ok…What else?” He’s just turned one and he doesn’t say a word. Well not anything I can understand anyhow. He likes to rock himself as he sits on the floor. He’ll bang his head and seems like that has picked up a lot more as he starts to get frustrated with things he’s not allowed to have. (My other little guy did this too) He spends probably 75% of his day screaming his head off and just doesn’t seem to be a happy child. He’s below the scale for weight only 18 lbs.
I know all children are different and they hit milestones at different stages. Not exactly sure what the doctor is worried about. At the appointment I was told to stop breastfeeding him, put him in his own bed and limit the time that I carry him. Huh??
NO you can’t have the number to my pediatrician. I can just imagine what your thinking. Those exact thoughts ran through my head. Why they called to have me bring him back in for another evaluation after I was told that he appeared to be on target has me puzzled. I guess the questionnaire I filled out had them thinking that possibly there is something that they are missing. I have an appt for a week away so I’ll have to update you then on their assumptions.
Any thoughts? I can certainly use some reassurance right about now, and just incase your wondering…I did delay his shots. I only allowed them to give him 2 shots or less per visit. He doesn’t deal with pain well and I certainly couldn’t add anymore to his discomfort. He’s still not caught up yet but that’s ok with me.
