These past few days E has been so clingy. If I sit on the floor to play with her she's crawling/climbing all over me. If I sit on the couch she is fussing at my feet, but if I pick her up she's wiggling to get down and play with her toys, but if I put her down....well you get the picture.
If I put her in her exersaucer/highchair/crib/anything.other.than.my.arms. she freaks out. I don't mean just whining or fussing, the poor girls voice is getting hoarse because she is crying so hard. I even had to break out the sling yesterday just so I could wash some dishes. Normally she is pretty partial to me, but these past few days have been ridiculous. And on top of it all she doesn't want to take a bottle; but she's so distracted when she's nursing it's hard to get her to eat. Tonight was the first night that she nursed to sleep in months. So I don't know if she just wants the extra comfort or what but it's getting hard to have another human hanging and whining on me almost 24/7. We have a wedding to go to this Saturday and E is staying at my mom's house and I am super nervous that she is going to lose her mind the whole time, and not want to take a bottle. AHHHHHHH!!!! Ok so that was my vent for today's frustrations. Now do not mistake any of this as I don't love/care about my daughter. I love her bigger than the world, but when you're home alone 99% of the time and don't have a free minute...things can get overwhelming.
Are most babies like this when they are teething? How do you handle teething/stage 5 clingers?
She did give me one spare minute today while she was
behind bars in her crib
