Hey people, I am mother of a 1.9 yr old girl. She is very normal in all ways but the only thing is her hyperactivity. She cannot stay still for more than 10 seconds. She has to keep dng things. She is not interested in toys or kitchen utensils. She just luvs roaming around in the house, or pulling things down from the cupboards or kitchen platforms. She demands a lot of my attention. The surprising part is she is not so hyperactive when she is with her father. That thought disturbs me a lot. Sumtimes when her wishes are not fulfilled she starts crying and then if i ignore her she gets a little unbearable and then she stops on her own. But i seriously dont know when to ignore and when not to. Becoz she crys for everything starting from demanding milk when she wakes up in the mrng and then when im changing her diapers, while feeding her ( a very fussy eater) , while putting her to sleep (as she is very persistent on getting a particular position while sleeping), while putting her to bath as she insists on playing with water ( Im scared that she may ingest the water as she gets food poisoning off and on), while taking her out to the park for a walk( we ve a park in our complex which also has a swimming pool and she insists that she enter the pool and if i dont let her then there she creates a small scene but can be taken care of with lot of effort on my side). So u c any thing requires a lot of effort from my side. Sumtimes i feel so tired of taking care of her. Im sure its not becoz i luv her any less but just that the effort makes me feel tired and at times i get up in the mrng thinking how will i get past this day. I was never able to breast feed her properly as she refused to breast feed. Im sure all of u must b thinking how can a child refuse that. But believe me I used to sit for almost 45-50 mnts feeding this child but she wud just suck the niple and go to sleep. It was very frustrating. I had a very good job which i quite post her birth so I cud b with her full time but everything went hay wires. I stopped breast feeding her after 5 months becoz by then it was battle keeping her close to my breast. I tried all positions, sitting,sleeping but in vain. Probably that struggle , i dont know if it created any aversion towards me. I wudnt exactly call it aversion but just that she cant b pacified easily and just seems so restless all the while. I need to watch 24*7 to c that she isnt upto any mischief. I feel so sad and tired somedays. Many kids that i c around me are not at all like her. To add to it when I was pregnant with her there were huge problems between my inlwas and parents which created quite a stir between me and my hubby and which continues even today. WE never share a similar opinion when it comes to our daughter. Also never am i comfortable leaving my kid with my inlaws. They are not bad in anyway and i know they take good care but it doesnt match my standards and they feel i dont reach thier standards in child rearing. So u c my daughter has been living in confusion and difference of opinions from the time she was born. Sometimes i feel she is so becoz of al that. My hubby believes that its fully becoz of the tensions that were there around us when i was pregnant with her. Any body cud u please offer any suggestions.
