My son is 9 weeks old and has "blessed " me with being an extremely fussy/colicky baby. I go back to work in two weeks and am terrified of sending him to daycare. I am lucky that my mom is helping two days a week, but that still leaves three days of daycare. There are so many days I feel like I can't handle the inconsolable crying, cat napping, screaming, etc that I wonder how on earth will someone watching several other babies be able to handle it?!?! Does anyone have any experience with this? Maybe insights to any questions to ask, anybred flags to look for etc?
Also, sooo glad I found this site! My SIL and BF had their babies two and half weeks after me, and they are great happy babies.... All of my friends who have kids always say, "well so and so was super fussy until we took this or tried this and then I had the happy baby I knew I had"..... Well nothing "fixes" my son, and it makes me want to punch my friends....I really need the support of people who are truly dealing with what I am...... beyond excited to share and read stories.
I am also dealing with a very colicky 6 week old. It's absolutely unbearable and I'm also supposed to be taking her to daycare when I go back to work at 12 weeks. I asked and they said they would still take her but I can't imagine someone else being able to tolerate her all day. Would be interested to hear what others who may have experienced this have to say.
Bml629-- does your child sleep at night? My daughter will only catnap during the day in my arms and is now not wanting to sleep at night unless she is in my arms.... Wondering if this is just a stage or will continue?
