I am overtired, overstressed and at the end of my rope. After being with the baby all day long, especially on a day like today when she is particularly fussy, it's as if I can't really see clearly anymore, if that makes any sense. For example, I'll begin to think something is really wrong with her JUST because she's awake... When in reality, it's safe to assume that if there were any reason to be alarmed, it'd either be obvious or she'd be crying, right?
Do any of you know what I mean here? I get so wrapped up in her care and so tired come this time of night, that I can't even seem to logically assume wether she's actually okay or not. She isn't crying right now, she isn't even whining or fussing, but I am SO afraid that she's sick or in pain or something just because she's still up and I can't figure out what's keeping her from sleeping.
I think she's having her first session of clusterfeeding, I'm not sure exactly because we've never been through it before... But she's wanting to eat non-stop, literally every few minutes, she eats for a bit then lets go, then wants it back almost right away, and so on and so on. It's been like this for hours! She is acting like she's staaaarving as if all of a sudden she can't get full. Is this clusterfeeding?
Oh I am at my wit's end here. I am so tired and so worried something's wrong with her because her behaviour is so different. She'll be 6 weeks old on the 22nd (Sunday.)
