I'm a new mommy so be patient while I try to explain my question LOL! I've been told that I have a very good baby, I always assumed I did too, she will be 10 weeks old tomorrow. The first 8 weeks she was good, my DH and I got to know her cries and which one meant what, she's a happy baby she would sit there and just look around while I vaccuumed, she really only cried when something was wrong, she seems to be a gassy baby so the Dr. has her on the Similac Senstive, she's an excellant burper but we assume she's gassy because all she has done the past 2 weeks is WHINE...and it's not a cry it's a whine, I'm not even sure how to explain it, but as soon as you pick her up or move her around a room she's fine, we assume she's bored or gassy. But it's ALL the time, if she' s not being held, sleeping or eating she is whining, I feel like a horrible mommy or a stupid one because maybe this is normal and every baby does this, and of course when anyone babysits she doesn't do it to them! At 6 weeks she started sleeping 7-9 hours at night in her crib (Yes I thought I died and went to heaven) then the last 3 days she only sleeps 5-6 I know that growth spurts and other things can contribute to that I don't care because I'm happy she is sleeping in her crib at night, she won't nap there but I'll live with that too, my question is, now don't laugh, is the whining normal? I keep thinking that maybe something is wrong with her? Maybe something is bothering her??? Then someone suggested teething!!?? At 2 mths really? Is that even possible? She does drool and bite her hands and our fingers and a binki but assume it's because she's hungry....HELP mommies! Am I just a parinoid unexperienced mom?
