Night-time stress

5 Aug

OMG Reagan has started screaming the place down between being lifted from the bath until she is fed.

We have always stuck to the same routine nothing changes, at 19:45 we take her upstairs and start the bath running while we prepare her for it. Next we bath her with calm words and suds galore then place her on a towel and swaddle her up to keep her warm until we get her to the bedroom where we dry her put her nappy on and then lotion her up before putting her in her ‘jamas and sleep bag. All this is followed by a lovely warm bottle and some booby milk if mommy’s doing it then she drifts off with a fairy story…!

The last couple of nights though we have had wailing tears and banshee like screams from when she is lifted from the bath until she gets her bottle and we can not fathom out why? If you heard her you would think she was being murdered but we are so gentle and loving but she has this thing now and when you are in the middle of it your stress levels are on EXTREME HIGH and it is just so tiring… but give her a bottle and she is happy. (I must add here that we have tried bottle before bath and that doesn’t work)

As I wrote this she has just settled for mommy after her latest bought of the screams and is restlessly sleeping in to a slumber….
