My DD cries whenever I leave the room. Any time I walk away she cries. This has been going on for over 2 months. This makes it very difficult for me to care for older son, the household, and myself. I often only stick to caring for my son because I get tired of the constant crying, leaving myself and house a mess. (I have asked the dr and he says she must love mom. But my son is a momma's boy and never did this)
Sometimes I wonder if it has to do with her feedings. I am away at work 10 hours of the day, and I only pump 8-10 ounces. I feel like she should be getting a lot more than that during that time. When I home, I BF every 3 hours as she demands. This is also through the night which I would love to skip one feeding, but right now I need the crying to stop.
Has anyone else gone through this? My DS did not do this, but he was only the child receiving my attention. Is that all this is, attention getting? When I say she cries when I am in a different room, many people think I am exaggerating until they witness it. It is true and constant.
