I've posted a few times about my son having major attachment issues. I'm back again because it's getting drastically worse. I know this is a breast feeding forum place and while my issues aren't just strictly breast feeding, I am hoping someone out there can help.
My son (4 months) will no longer accept the paci (he hates it now), refuses to nap during the day and is up anywhere between 1 and 3 hours during the night. The ONLY way I can get him to fall back asleep is if I nurse him. Nothing else will work. He will just lay in his crib and cry... scream... cry until I nurse him. He used to be a really good sleeper. Now when we put him down for bed after our routine he will sleep for about 30 minutes then wake up crying and I will have to nurse him again. This goes on sometimes for an hour or two until he finally stays asleep for 2 or 3 consecutive hours.
And now he has developed this awful and I mean AWFUL high pitched scream. If he doesn't get picked up within a few minutes he starts this screaming and it...is...so...loud.... We do not do the CIO method but sometimes I can't get to him at the very first sign of a fuss. Max is 2 or 3 minutes and by then he has gone from fuss to full blown crying / screaming. Again, the only thing that calms him down is nursing. I literally nurse all.day.long. And since I know some of you will ask / mention it: He hates his baby carrier, we've tried co sleeping several times and it doesn't work. I'm just at a loss of what to do. A non sleeping non napping baby is really hard to entertain for 10 hours while daddy is at work. If he does nap, it's for 10 minutes. literally.
