I'm not sure what it is, but do you agree that people somehow always feel the need to tell you how your baby is feeling?
My son is crying, and only I know the differences of his cry...but someone will say something like...
Maybe he's hungry?
Maybe he's tired?
Maybe he needs changing?
Maybe he needs a cuddle?
Maybe he's constipated?
Maybe he needs a nap?
Well actually, how about maybe he's just fucking attention seeking and want's the whole world to know he's crying, huh?!
I get these comments all the time not just from my family who are experts in how to raise a baby, but from total strangers. I get it, some people just want to help, but i find it extremely annoying. My son is only 9 months old. He is very clingy. He is still my baby, so what do you expect? Yes, babies do cry, you know?! And for no reason sometimes, too!
I am writing this post because, someone said to me "you don't know anything about babies" I do and I don't. I am not worlds best Mother. I am a first time Mother. I respect that you have more children than me, but that does not mean you can go round saying this to people. Especially when you don't even know their babies!
I am his Mother. I know what he wants, and most of the time, he just wants me to cuddle him. He wants me to carry him wherever I go, and sometimes I can't get things done, but it's not going to be like this forever so I'll end this post on a positive note. I'm glad he knows who I am. I'm glad he wants my full attention. I'm glad he wants to come with me wherever I go. I'm glad he crawls to find me wherever I am in our home. I'm glad he cries if he can't see me, because guess what, i would be so upset if he didn't do those things. I'm glad he's reaching out to me when someone else is holding him.
