One thing I've learned so far about the difference in boys and girls is that little boys WANT their mama's.
I was always so proud of my ability to be able to hand my girls to anyone and they (for the most part) were happy. Not B. He at 5 months old, will lunge at me as soon as he sees me. And it really doesn't matter who is holding him. He loves his daddy and is perfectly content to be with him.....unless he sees me or hears me.
I was very proud of the fact that all three of my girls did really well sleeping as infants. They slept in their own beds, in their own rooms, all night long. Not B. When he had RSV, I put him in bed with me so I could hear him breathing. Now he WILL NOT sleep without me. So, lately- it's been me and B in the bed and K's been sleeping on the couch.....not so good, I know.
I really don't know how to change this.....I've been known in the past to say that they have to cry it out....and I do believe there is credibility in that. However, at this point, I have three other children that I have to take care of and do for during the daytime hours and it is so much easier for me to just let B sleep with me.
I fear for the future when he is already this attached to me......
Ya'll have any advice?
