Both of my boys (3 years and 8 months) are high needs. My older son...omg theres just no describing it. And my baby is acting exactly the same as my older one did as a baby. Its not 'just a baby thing' at all. Its the baby thing to the extreme. And Im not sure how to cope, so any ideas, suggestions, and advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
Edited to explain better:
Ok let me try to describe them lol. My baby is CONSTANTLY wanting attention, having to be in motion. Now he hasnt started crawling yet, but he never sits still. Now I know while that sounds normal, I really dont think he is. I cant get anything done when he's awake, and naps are almost non existent. He is in the separation anxiety stage, but even he's taken that to the max. I cant walk even out of eye shot without him starting to scream! He wants to eat constantly, and not just for food. Ive gotten to where when he nurses, and just wants to have the boob in his mouth to play, I take it away. Hes constantly having to be touched, held, like he HAS to have your undivided attention all the time. There's no schedule with him, no matter what I do, his nursing sessions will last at a maximum 5 minutes, and in an hour will nurse 10 times sometimes. He is on solids, so he gets solids 3 times a day, and some days when I get frustrated with him wanting to nurse just to play, I will make him a bottle. This link my friend sent me, describes my LO to a 'T'. Maybe that will help explain him a little better:
Now as for my older son,he displays many of those same things, just in a bigger version. Along with TERRIBLE tantrums, and he's very challenging, maybe. I cant do any one thing with him one day, and it work the next day. He has the attention span of a goldfish, which I know is pretty much normal for toddlers, but it just seems the boys act so similar to each other, and so different from my DD (5), that Im just not sure how to deal with it.
