Losing my mind! Milk Monster 2 kids; Arizona 9089 posts

My nearly 6 month old DD wants me to hold her ALL the time. She screams if I lay her in her crib, tummy time, swing, bouncer, etc. I've even tried wearing her in our moby wrap but the past few days she will NOT let me put her down without her screaming. Even when she's asleep, the moment I put her down she wakes up screaming. I don't know what to do. I have another child to care for and I cannot be holding her 24/7.



Help.

Did wearing her in the Moby not work?
Have you tried swaddling her? I know she seems a bit old for a swaddle, but some babies swaddle until a year.

Nope, moby didn't work. I've tried swaddling. :/ She is swaddled every night for bed. Aha. Idk what's going on with her. I think it's because she is teething. I gave her some hylands teething tablets.

What about giving her some tylenol if she is in pain.

teething tablets have never worked for either of my kids. i would try giving her a little bit of infant tylenol cause it seems like shes in pain

we have tried the teething tablets before but they never really worked for us. if baby is super uncomfortable maybe try a little infants advil or tylenol

DD was being the same way the other day for about 2 days, her teeth were really bothering her. I had to keep giving her teething tablets and tylenol, she wouldn't sleep anywhere but in my arms and she couldn't be put down. I know that Hylands has some teething gel too since i refuse to use orajel, maybe try that.
