Ok first im just gonna say that i miss my husband terribly. He has been gone for 2 days and i miss him. Zala misses him too. He is such a huge part of my life and when he's gone i feel like that part is gone too. But i will manage 3mths without him :)

 Ok for the advice...i have a 4 day old baby and she doesnt cry. Your probably thinking well hell i wish i could say that. But to me i feel there might be something going on. I mean she dont cry when shes hungry, nor when she needs to be changed. I feed her every 2 hours, and thats the only way of me knowing shes hungry. It was wierd cus when we were at the airport, my husband gave zala a kiss and said he loved her then he left. I was crying of course and when he got out of sight zala started bawling. She wasnt hungry, her diaper was fine. Idk what to think. Im scared there might be something wrong. I mean really she dont cry. She sleeps and looks around all day. No crying. My first 2 nights she cried once or twice but last nite she didnt cry at all. I mean should i be worried? Someone pls tell me its normal.

Liz

Jun. 2, 2008 at 4:57 PM Don't panic - my little girl didn't cry much either.  I kept her on a schedule and she ate every certain amount of hours and I changed her and she really didn't need to cry - unless she felt bad.  Keep your eye on her - temp, eating habbits, skin tone (for rashes, spots, discoloration, etc) and that is all you can do.  If you don't see any changes - don't worry - you are one of the lucky ones who have a child who doesn't cry...I had one...I didn't even know she was sick unless I just happened to notice she was warm - she had a double ear infection once and I had no clue - till I was kissing her head and she was hot with fever...so don't panic - you are blessed...BUT - know this - I am paying for it now that she is 6 - she cries about everything, LOL!!!  Good luck and take advantage of the time with her!

First let me say that the first month or so can be pretty scary even when you have a partner to share it with - it's even harder when you're alone. If your instincts say something is wrong, take her to the pediatrician with a list of what you've noticed (write it down so you remember everything and don't get intimidated if the doc brushes it off at first).

 Everything is probably OK if she has at least 7 wet diapers a day, is sleeping, and eating. Follow your instincts though if you think something is wrong. My son didn't cry a lot the first week and was a pretty content baby (no sleepless nights). I think TV has given us the impression that babies scream all the time, but it sounds like you're doing a good job at fulfilling her needs. She probably cried when hubby left because she sensed you emotions.

 It's going to be fine and it gets much easier (until the start walking - then it's uphill for a while).

Good luck, let me know if you need a shoulder to cry on!

Hunni...Everything is fine. Chloe NEVER cried!! After waking up to her NEVER crying I would be worried also. She will soon get out of that stage in a month! Chloe was always sleeping and never awake or never would do anything!! But now she is always being little miss mover and cryer and she has been sooo different lately but it feels great knowing she is awake and vibrant instead of a little sleeping bundle that in kinda boring!! :D But n-e ways I hope things are better babeh!! I hope he comes back real soon and once again you will feel like a family!!
