Tough Day

My little man is officially one month old today. I am very happy about that, but today has been one of the toughest days we've had since he came home. He has been fussy all day and I feel like I just can't soothe him for longer than a few minutes at a time. He nurses, then fights at the breast, fusses or screams, latches back on, and we start the process again. In between, he has vomited some this morning, not this afternoon. I am hoping this nursing session calms him down, because we both need a nap.

Thanks for reading. Just needed to share. Hoping you are all having better days. mobile smiley

    Same here, but my LO is only 11 days old. She is asleep right now for the first time since this morning. My boobs are about to fall off from her wanting to nurse so much today. We were both crying at one point.
    Hope tomorrow is better for you.

    We've had a couple of days like that recently where LO cried and fussed and wouldn't sleep for 7 hrs straight. I think his stomach was upset. He was spitting up a lot too.

    This was me a few days ago. I am glad to say it seems to of blown over and she has been ok. I think it may of been something I had eaten as she seemed to of had a tummy ache or something. Hope it's the same case for you and your LO is just having one of those days...

    We have our good and bad days. When my son is really fussy that no soothing can take care of we put him in the car and go for a drive. Although at 6 weeks now he is awake more during the day and a drive doesn't put him out like it use to. I would try going for a drive at bedtime and let him sleep in the carseat afterwards.

    Thank you so much for your support, ladies. Knowing you're out there going through the same things makes me feel less alone. It can be isolating sometimes with a newborn, imo.

    Little man didn't nap for real until 7:30 last night. My husband came home to me in tears and let me take a nap, thank goodness.

    Last night, little man slept well and was great today. All three of us even got a nap this afternoon. We are getting to bed later than usual, but because I had a nap, I don't feel like I'm going to fall out of my chair during this nursing session. Hoping he sleeps well tonight.

    I hope all of you are doing well and enjoy Father's Day.
