I’ve found the past 10 days some of the most difficult in weeks.
The sleep training stalled last week and I felt like I was banging my head on a brick wall. Sticking to the routine has meant I haven’t been out and about and doing things that much, so I guess I’m feeling pretty lonely and isolated.
But the worst bit: Little Bun’s been ‘off’ for a week. I finally took her to the doctor today and she has a suspected stomach virus. What gets me is I did the same thing a month ago, and when her poo sample came back normal I subsequently ignored her symptoms assuming this was ‘just her’. So she’s (probably) been sick the whole time and I haven’t done anything about it.
And now I’m really guilt tripping myself that I’ve been sleep training a sick baby.
I mean, she’s OK. She’s bright and happy and smiley – she just has hideous nappies and is posseting a whole lot. And feeding weirdly. And not sleeping well. Maaan.
Gawd. I’m stuck. I don’t know what’s wrong with her. I’m halfway through a sleep training plan that I feel I should abandon until she’s well. And now she has a screaming dummy addiction to boot. To top it off I’m pretty sure she’s not gaining weight as she should, probably because of this virus.
