Has anyone's LO been more fussy than normal lately? Lauryn used to hardly EVER cry, except when she was hungry, and it seems over the past 2-3 days she's just been a cranky monster.
She IS eating less but wanting to eat more frequently, so I'm not worried about that too much since she's still getting the same amount in a 24 hour period. Diapers are normal, she doesn't seem more gassy, doesn't have a fever, doesn't act sick, etc. She has a little bit of a stuffy nose, but that's been for a while now, and I know can be completely normal since babies can't blow their noses like we can.
I read online that normal fussiness usually starts around 2-3 weeks (she is 3 weeks today) peaks at 6 weeks and is usually gone by 3-4 months.
So, is anyone else going through this? or should I be worried?
Lincoln is pretty fussy He's ok as long as someone is holding him but I just get tired of the constant contact sometimes and need a little space. If he's really sleepy I can get him to nap a decent amount in his swing or his snuggle nest, but other than that, if he's awake he's either being held or super fussy. I think it's just his personality and I'm hoping when he's a bit older and can interact with the world more it will pass.
Julius has been really fussy lately too, and it's mostly from 3pm-11pm he hardly naps, only if he's being held will he stay asleep for longer than 5 minutes and we wants to eat every hour. He seems to be tired but just won't give in and keeps himself awake.
