I can’t remember when Baby G started her crying spell. Probably about 2 months back if I can still remember clearly… She don’t sleep like a baby any more as she wakes up almost every hour during the night just so she can get boobed (copied this word from mamapumpkin). Initially I told myself that since she could be teething, hence all the crying due to the pain but her teeth have sprouted so she should be feeling better. Guess I was wro0ng. I think I really had enough of this wakey-wakey business during the night. I am not a good sleeper like PiggyBeng (he won’t know if the world explode) so this waking up many times in the night really put a toll on my health. I am turning into a Dracula! (*-*) My problem is, I can go back to sleep after waking up. I don’t take naps either.
Baby G don’t just cry… she will scream louder and louder if I chosed to ignore her. Afraid that the noise will wake her daddy who needs his 8-hour of beauty sleep else he can’t function the next day, this mommy has to sacrifice.
We have never had these kind of situations before with Darrius. Darrius was an easy baby and he don’t cry that much even when he was teething. The only thing was, he has a few rounds of fever which Baby G does not have.
After weeks/ months of these, I think I can take it no more and my last resort was taking this measure…
Yes… I gave her a chut-chut!!!!! It was really something I hate to do but I don’t have or can’t find a better solution! I don’t know how this chut-chut will perform but I am just going to give it a try.
She is already going to be 9-month old in less than 10 days so she might not take it so well as those who got started earlier in their life. But then again, no harm trying.
Bought her a pair of this NUK rubber soothers which supposed to be like real ‘nipple’ so babies were supposed to feel ‘comforted’ by it. Wanted to get the silicone ones but they seemed to be more expensive and looked fake but cleaner. Maybe if Baby G wanted to continue to be ‘chut-chuted’ then I’ll get them for her.
Let her suck on it yesterday and she thought that it was a toy so she kept pulling it out and play with it by biting other areas except the ‘rubber teat’! So I forced her to nap with it and she did put on a tough fight before she finally went to lalaland still sucking it. Some improvement. However, during night time, she refused to have it and insisted on the boobs instead so no choice gotta boobed her else she won’t stop crying.
Then just now, I tried to stuffed into her mouth when I put her to nap and she gave another tough fight but mommy won again and she went to sleep still sucking it. Can’t wait till she is able to sleep on her own while sucking this fake ‘boobies’!
