I'm really gonna come off like a judgmental you know what... but I'm really just wondering about a friend of mind's baby.
she's 8 lbs 10 ounces at 10 1/2 weeks old. (born-37 weeks @6 lb 10oz) she's formula fed and I see her change the baby maybe 3 times in 6-7 hour period. she says she poops once a day. the baby cries almost as much as mine(mine has extreme EXTREME colic) but her baby stops only if picked up clearly wants to b held and wants attention. she never ever talks to her baby or holds her. she lets her scream until falling asleep (makes me so sad) multiple times a day. I truly think she just doesn't wanna b bothered by a baby. it makes me very sad for the baby.
the main reason I ask what y'all think is because my mom actually brought it up to me after spending the day with me and my friend. since my ebf son has gained 6 lbs (not joking) since birth and is 9 weeks lol and he is VERY interactive and extremely vocal when he isn't crying and loves to b held and desires full attention(that I def give him. I use my ergobaby the majpridy of the day). I just wonder if this is typical parenting for someone and if the baby really is okay or if there's something going on. she's just not very nurturing at ALL. breaks my heart
