Hi moms (and dads), My daughter is now 7 weeks old and we have had lots of difficulties with her lately. When she was a newborn, she would ride in her carseat with no problems, sleep anywhere with no problems (i know newborns mostly sleep so that could be the case), etc. Recently (within the last week or two) we have noticed that she hates her carseat (screams and screams when she is in it - making leaving the house a nightmare), refuses to sleep even though she is exhausted, and doesn't sleep for long during the day (maybe a couple of hours). She also will not sit/lie by herself when she is awake and constantly wants to be held and rocked (while I am standing! Even when I am sitting and holding her she cries). I have googled and it appears that there is a time around 6-8 weeks where babies are shown to cry more and be more fussy. We just took her to the ped and everything is fine so she has no medical issues. Our ped said we just have to get through it and things will get easier... Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon? It's all over the internet and I am hoping she will get better soon. I feel like a prisoner in my own home, as well as an inadequate mom who doesn't know how to console her baby!!!
