For the past week my daughter has been doing this 'crying thing' where when I lay down with her in my arms to get some rest she will start crying and want me to sit up with her. As soon as I sit up she will stop crying and go to sleep and she actually peeks to see if I'm still sitting up it seems because when I slowly lay down she will open her eyes and look around and notice that I'm laying down and will cry. Then I sit up again and she will stop. Then I get so frustrated because I can't get comfy. Then when I put some pillows behind me to sit up with her comfortablly in the bed to sleep she will cry then and want me to lay down and cry till I lay down with her on my chest.
I think she's very smart for a newborn and she will grab on extra hard to me when I'm trying to put her down and won't let go. I have to like pry her hands off my shirt sometimes. She is 7 weeks old. Has anyone been through this? Then she slides herself up all the way to my face when she is on my chest at times and will start crying extra loud and pinch onto my face. It's so many things she does...I love her so much though and sometimes it's funny but sometimes it makes me cry because I'm so tired and irritated because of no sleep.
