What do you think my baby wants?

She has been miss grumpy pants lately. Very unlike her.

4 months old.

So tell me. Make a blind guess!

The only thing that ALWAYS works to make her happy is to hold her in my lap. Stand her up facing me and lift her repeatedly saying juuuump juuuuuump in a high pitched voice.

I am exhausted! Lol.

  • Nope. She doesn't seem to have a favorite anything. Neither did my first. Usually a boob in the mouth cures everything but lately she is just disgruntled.

  • Could she be teething already? Have you been eating anything that could mess with her tummy? It's so hard to tell, could be anything! Have things been stressful with your SO recently? She could be picking that up, my DD always did.

  • I change my opinion, Ballad is right. It has to be baby blue though, right little one?

  • I did have brocolli with dinner yesterday and onions the day before that.

    Are you sure she doesn't want a forest green mini Cooper?

  • She might be all gassed up. And I don't mean her car! Broccoli and onions make for cranky breastfeeding babies.

  • Nah, she's got style for miles. Vintage mustang or impala all the way. Broccoli & onions can definitely do it, especially if you don't eat them often & she's not used to them. Did the fussiness start since then, or before?

  • Yeah. I get mad when I have gas too. She only poops once every three days. That would also make me mad.
