Is it normal to get easily irritated with your newborn? No, I don't harm her she is cutting teeth and today she just started this thing where she hits herself shes 4 months old.

I used to get pretty frustrated. You get to a point where you're at a loss of what to do next to help them. Maybe you could have someone sit for you so you can have some time away?

Oh yes.  Plus, my mother would say to me, "Why is that baby crying??"  And I would throw back something like, "I don't know! Maybe he doesn't like the way the birds are chirping today??"  It IS frustrating because you just want them to communicate and tell you what is wrong.  Add lack of sleep and it's easy to get frustrated.

Like KimmieLu suggested, even a grocery shopping trip ALONE can be REFRESHING!

Yep, babies are extremely annoying. They can't feed, clean, or soothe themselves. They also have this habit of crying for no apparent reason. It would be weird if you didn't get irritated with them.

I agree.
When you need to, just go into the bathroom or where ever it's quiet, and take a minute away from your little one. If you feel like it's getting worse talk to your doctor..that's what they're there for. :)
