Do any of u mummies ever lose patience with ur bb? I did and I did it several times. I slap his thigh, I pinch his thigh, I scold, I shake. I just did all these last night.. because i spend almost 2hrs coaxing him to sleep yet he cant sleep. I got no helper .. my hubby is outstationed regularly so usually i take care of my bb after my work. At 1st i din feel this way, i pet him, i hugged him (yet he kept kicking), i sang lullaby but all these din make him sleepy. I gave him pacificer which I tot could coax him but he looked at me with his bright eyes. I tried to give him milk but he rejected (cos he just have one bottle an hour ago). Then I decided to put him down on the floor and carry on with my stuff but he end up crying. I din want him to cry cos he will wake his grandma up so i end up sticking by him for so long until i lose my patience. I told myself i should not be angry. I told myself to control myself but i fail to do it. when i scold him i noticed that he looked at me even harder.. he seem to be trying to understand what i am doing. There was another time when i was driving (alone with him), he cried throughout the journey. I got so frustrated and i scold him again cos i was explaining that i am driving i cant carry him. I know he dun understand but... sigh after such episode i feel guilty. But such guilt will not stop me from doing it again if i feel frsutrated. Can anyone advise me what should i do to "wake myself" up to stop such actions?
