Hey ladies, our LO is 15.5 weeks and she cries when anyone else holds her. I know she doesn't like being with large groups of people and wit lots of noise, so that has something to do with it. When we go out with my family or over his parents house every Sunday there is about 20 people altogether and everyone wants to hold her, but when they do she screams, cries, and wails painful cries. She gets to the point of no return that I won't be able to calm her down. She only gets to that point because I feel like they don't even try to calm her by changing positions and standing and walking around with her (which I mention all the time when others aren't holding her so I don't sound rude). She's also a breast fed baby, but my mother in law really likes giving the grand babies bottles so I try to bring one each Sunday if I can but once she's done she cries and mother in law just tries to shush her sitting down. I hate letting her scream and cry with everyone because a. It hurts my boobs and chest b. I hate hearing her cry I general and it's painful screams where she stops breathing every little bit she's crying so hard and c. Because I don't want her to get to a point where we can't then calm her. DH gets mad that I want to take her back from anyone, which I don't do because I don't want him or anyone else upset. But I want to take her. Im surprised and kind of irritated no one asks if we want her back or just give her back when she gets that bad. We were at a wedding this weekend and she was crying with me and my mother in law said she was glad to see her cry with me because she thought she hated her.
Please tell me I'm not the only one with a baby that cried quite a bit especially with other people. Any advice is appreciated. My husband hates it and gets so mad th at she cries and thinks she's not normal and somethings wrong.
