Saturday, 26 October 2013: Two Hundred and Seven Days Old.
I have no idea what’s going on today.
After our third rough night in a row, Ayla has spent literally all day grizzling and whinging.
It’s so unlike her, and because of that I don’t know how to handle it!
Ayla’s been off her milk, refusing to nap and cries whenever I go out of sight, but she has no temperature or symptoms of any kind and even picking her up hasn’t comforted her.
I guess it’s teething but I can’t feel anything underneath her gums… Surely if she’s this bad they’d be nearly breaking through?!
Don’t get me wrong though, Ayla hasn’t been a nightmare under certain terms, but compared to her normal state of happy she’s certainly been Grumpy Smurf.
I desperately hope she’s better tomorrow, although for now I’m simply looking forward to an hour of no noise and no squirming baby in my arms.

What about her ears? Is she playing or pulling on them?
Nah, not really…. She just looks really sorry for herself and keeps staring at me with pleading eyes. Breaks my heart. She does seem a bit better today though, thankfully!
You said she’s 9 months? Sometimes it’s a sleep regression. We had that a little bit around here too, along with teething then her ear infection so I totally feel ya momma! keep doing what you are doing and know….you are doing a wonderful job.
Nawww thanks! Ayla’s seven months but that sounds like it. We’ve had a rough run too, she was sick, then I was, then her nappy rash got really bad… Can’t wait to get our routine back! Thanks for the support 🙂
I have a magic rash cream I swear by it! My girlfriend told me about it! First till tell you the magic then I’ll share the three creams. Serenity had a massive rash and out of the blue. All over her bottom and beat red, screams just to lay her down. A combo of desitin, A&d, and athletes foot cream…within 1 application she felt better, by 2 no Crying or screaming! I got some stuff at the dollar store b that stuff is expensive. 🙂 I started following ya last night. 😉 I’m a first time mom too. My girl is 10.5 months.
Oh wow! Thanks! How awesome are little girls 🙂 Thanks also for the cream suggestions – y’know you’re the only other person to suggest athletes foot cream and that’s what the doc said too!! Where are you?
I’m in PA. Where are you? You’re welcome! I swear ya it’s magic! Our doctor didn’t mention it but I used nystatin and I’m allergic so I jumped on this cream. Little girls are so sweet I love having a princess.
We’re in Darwin, Australia. I’ve never been to the USA but I desperately want to get over there! Xmas in New York us on my bucket list lol.
Oh that’s awesome! I would love to go there. Seems beautiful. It’s crazy in New York and hopeful you can scratch that off your list.
