Hmmm...Is It Teething, Or Not Adjusting To Daycare?
Ok, so I just took on a 6 month old little guy and today was his 2nd day. I was assured by mom he was a happy easy baby, loved to eat his bottles, and so I was really wasnt too worried. But yesterday and today he would NOT settle without being walked around in my arms (which mom says he is not a cuddler), and wouldnt eat more than 2 oz of his bottle and then refuse it for a good 30 minutes to an hour...being super fussy in between. Mom thinks he is teething, because last night he only slept for 5 hours and was refusing the bottle with her too.
My husband thinks he is having trouble adjusting to being in a daycare that he wasnt the only baby in, and teeth have nothing to do with it. I am worried that I wont be able to handle all the fussing. I already have a 5 month old, an 8 month old, and a 15 month old, so I cant carry and coddle him all day.
What do u guys think? Mom is so surprised that he is so fussy all the sudden, as his first 2 teeth didnt cause this much fussiness. Would a rough adjustment at daycare carry over to home as well? Or does this sound like teething? None of my kids had any trouble with teeth aside from biting and loose stools, so I dont know what to think.
