The screaming child

My babay screams so much.He screams all the time.He is in no pain other than maybe some gas pain but he has been to the doctor and he is healthy.Jack is almost 2 months old.How long will he do this?? Is it normal??When will I ever sleep again??I am so tired and stressed even though my wonderful family is here to help me out.I sometimes feel like a terrible mother.I have horrible thoughts late at night when he cries.I would never hurt him but some nights I curse at him and I cry and almost wish things could go back to the way they were before I got pregnant.I hear that feeling this way is normal but it makes me feel so awful!

awwwww :( Some babies are just like that, I hate to tell you. I know it's not fair when you read other blogs of babies who slept through the night from like day 3 (blech) The older he gets, the more the screaming should start to slow down.

Try to take time for yourself if you can. When you have family come over and they're holding him, ask if you can go lock yourself in the bathroom for awhile, and take a LONG hot shower. It'll help with your sanity a little.

Remember, you're not a terrible mother! Every one has those moments too where we just want to cry hysterically with them and rip our hair out! If they say they don't, they're either lying or on really good meds! LOL!
