But I really need to hear it. Are your babies BETTER when you're not around? Ds cries all the time if I am around, but if I leave him with someone for a bit (like 30-45 minutes) he is a gem! He plays on the floor by himself, entertains himself, smiles and is happy. As SOON as I walk back into the room, he is screaming again. Generally unhappy, unless he is being carried. And while I'm carrying him, he acts like he wants down, leaning over, wrestling me, but as soon as I put him down, he acts like I clubbed him over the head (which is ONLY what I thought of doing as soon as he started fussing--I swear I've never actually done it ).
This is a lot of the reason my elbow is in the state its in--the constantly having to hold his dead weight, as he leans over reaching for the ground.
