So Isabella has been doing really well so far she is now almost 10 weeks and she already got good head control, can roll over to snuggle with mumma, recognizes not just our faces, but also the place and her toys, can grab things and yesterday sat unaided for 20 seconds (quite alert and chatty).
And considering that she is growing really fast (faster than the average milestone charts), I am unable to recognize this very unsettled state which falls upon her. It did on Wednesday and we were at Sick kids as she went on a complete milk strike, she was just angry and not wanting to feed and only wanted to be out and about in her pram. Doctors thought she might have a UTI (as everything else was normal) but comes out her tests are fine !
today again, she woke up suddenly crying, and was again on milk strike for 6 hours, there was no wind or no burp that we could hear off. And at the sick kids again the doctors said that her tummy was quite nice and soft. The looked for ear infection, which was not there, a repeat UTI which was also not there.
Funnily both the times she has been happy when in the hospital and the moment we get her out of there, she starts crying with big tears and at top of her lungs, no amount of rocking, cuddling, motivating to play or to sleep or an of those damn 31 ways to put your baby to sleep(and etc like those) would help!!
She is fed both breast milk and formula, and i try to keep her to my breast and skin to skin contact as much as possible (infact sometimes I feel I did nothing the whole day except feed her). She is getting formula as top-ups (while I am on medication to increase my milk supply and I am nearly on verge of giving up breast feeding)
She is so unsettled today and looks like she completely hates me and I am feeling so distressed.
She has been rubbing her ear a lot but the doctors have ruled out any ear infection on examination - could it be that she still has one ? Or some other problem that we might not have heard of in babies so far (as this is our first child).
considering that she is only 2 and half month I am ruling out the possibility of teething so early, but could that be ? has anyone experienced or heard of teething so early in babies (I know recently a baby was born with teeth, but she was born without them like most of normal babies)
Any advise would be really helpful !
