I’m having a really hard time with Adara lately. For the last 3wks she’s been crazy! I know it’s very early but I’m worried she’s starting to show signs of hyperactivity already..?
As soon as she sees anything she wants, she starts to shake, squeal & reach out with this determined look in her eyes & wants me to take her there but then I can’t put her down on the floor to play at all - if I put her on her tummy she’ll play for about 10secs, try to crawl (goes bkwds instead) and then cry. If I put her on her back she’s on her tummy as soon as she hits the ground anyway. For some reason she won’t even sit to play anymore.
I had to buy her a cot bumper cos she moves around so much & rolls over in her sleep, then wakes up with her arm or leg sticking out all twisted through the bars in the middle of the night. The bumper did help but now, even though I added a whole heap of extra ribbons to it & tuck it in to the mattress every night, she still manages to undo it somehow. Most mornings she’ll have a whole side of the cot bumper in the middle of the cot, usually holding it over her head as a kind of upside-down pillow which freaks me out. Forget about daytime sleeps...
I can’t do anything that will make her happy anymore. Whenever she’s awake I can only hold her in my lap with some toys she wants & then she’ll still screech & tell me off most of the time anyway. She always has been an extremely active & alert baby but she used to be so calm & happy.
Is this a stage that babies go through or should I be worried about ADHD? I’ve never seen a baby act like this before & none of the babies from my mums group are going through this... HELP ME PLEASE, she’s really creeping me out!!!!
