Thanks for the responses and for the much needed support. I sure need it today.
Caiden has become increasingly more active. Crawling backwards, pulling himself up, doing pushup like moves. I can't keep him still! It's quite wonderful actually.
As for him teething....absolutely! He has been doing all of these things with some ferver lately, too.
Baby is nursing at least 5 x per day and once or twice at night. He lately has been nursing non-stop during the night, I think due to the teething/clingy factor.
He is absolutely NOT sleeping 12 hrs a night. Maybe 4 hours at a time before the teething episodes wake him up and he needs to be nursed/comforted back to sleep....which lately has been close to impossible without co-sleeping. But I'm just rolling with it.
His diaper output, as far as urine, is just fine. The poop has been the problem lately. He had not pooped since Monday. I did help him along with feeding him some prunes, and he did well. He loved the prunes and finally pooped earlier today.
Anyway....I am so upset about this peds thing. They are not just Caiden's Ped, it's my 10yr old DD's ped, who she has had since she was 2 yrs old. So leaving that practice is definately more complicated, ya know? I don't know what to do, but I know that what happened yesterday is just not okay, kwim?
I shouldn't feel bad when I leave their office. And I felt like the biggest piece of garbage and the worst mother ever.... I shouldn't ever feel that way.
