  • I don't think your a bad mother your just stressed out. I have a son that is 6 1/2 months and all he ever does is cry and want to be held and wants all he attention. and you leaving the baby in the room is a good idea so you don't take the anger out out them. I don't know what else to tell you. Hope everything works out for you.

  • Its okay to get upset just breathe evry mother goes through times like this as far as i know and its okay no one can call u a bad mother for being overwhelmed everyone goes through it just try to calm down take things one step at a time slow down and think about what u need to do... first sit and drink a glass of water ... then pick up when ur ready... just a few things at a time. maybe just organize the dishes and run the water ( u get the point) then check on the baby when u r calmer. Its okay to let her cry for a little while. The baby is probably sensing that ur mad and frustrated and its making her tense just rock her slowly and try to calm her down too. itll be okay. if worse comes to worse call a relative or friend to come help u for a little while

  • You should go ahead and clean your house. It'll be once less thing to be stressed about. It might actually relieve some stress to do the physical work.

  • I think most of us have been there. Call her peditrician first but I would Give her baby orajel and tylenol as directed.

  • try motrin! It has been a life saver here! Letting her cry is fine but it sounds like you need a break if you have some family that lives close I would call tehm and take a nap! Hope it gets better soon!

  • it doesn't make u a bad mom. At least u know when u are fed up and put her in a safe place when u r upset. i have a 3 yr old who has been driving me nuts and it is so hard not to lose my temper. Sometimes i just want to get out. But things will get easier. It can't last forever. Just make sure to ask and get help when u can. Sometimes u can't do it alone

  • Get a sling! I have a very high needs toddler and her sling was a LIFESAVER during her first year of life. There was no way I would have accomplished anything without it. I had a Moby Wrap, but you might like a Mei Tai also.

    And I agree with PP. Clean your house as much as you can after she goes to bed. If you have no energy then, do it tomorrow when she's awake. Have her sit next to you while you clean--5 minutes cleaning, then 5 mins playing with her. Takes longer that way, but everything gets done.

    Good luck mama. Go give that LO a hug. I hate when my LO is teething--I just cuddle her because I feel so bad for her pain.
