My WTF is for my LO - why won't you let your dad calm you down?? I feel terrible for my husband because since he's gone back to work he's only with LO at night, like 9pm - 1am, and for some reason that is her fussiest time of day, and he just can't seem to calm her down. I've had success with bouncing her around, gliding her or singing to her and she'll calm down within minutes. But when he's trying those same things she'll scream for *hours* if I don't intervene and I feel so bad for him. I know it hurts his feelings and he feels like he's a bad father, but I've tried to assure him that she's only 2 weeks old and is used to me from being in the womb, and this phase won't last forever. It just sucks to see him looking so sad and helpless while she cries, especially since he's trying so hard and so excited about being a dad.
So much crying today! 5 weeks on Friday and I really need reassurance that it gets better, eventually.
That nasty stuff on LOs hand (tell me she's not the only one) it's like milk gets between her fingers because she likes her hands by her face when she nurses, then lint gets stuck and sweat puts it together so it's this stinky black stuff in her hands
