If you read my blog then you will know that I am no parenting expert. In fact, I am quite the opposite. Before I started blogging I used to turn to Google when I encountered anything new on my journey through motherhood but now I turn to Twitter or my lovely blog readers because it’s always better to hear from people who have real experience.
Something scary just happened. I did end up using my maternal instincts but I have no idea if I did the right thing or not because I had no idea things could ever get that scary.
Iyla has been ill over the weekend and as I am still breastfeeding her, I did so more than normal because she wasn’t eating. She is nearly better now though and I can’t just let her breastfeed whenever she wants to because I would NEVER get her off so when she asked I said no.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.
She was screaming, hitting, screeching and stamping. Then she screamed so much that she puked all over the sofa and in her hair. Thank god Dad2BabyInsomniac was home as we had to give her a bath which was a two man job in this situation. She was going mental, like absolutely mental. I then got her out and I had to just leave her then in her room because nothing I did was helping.
I watched from the door as she jumped, screamed, shouted absolute nonsense and paced the room falling to the ground every now and again. Eventually she calmed down and now she is happier than ever whilst me and Dad2BabyInsomniac are in a state of shock. I am scared, waiting for her to flip out again! The whole thing lasted nearly an hour.
I was expecting tantrums. But not this!
How often do they have them?!
Are they meant to be this bad?
WHAT SHOULD I DO?!!!
One day, when I know everything there is to know about parenting, I will pass on my knowledge to people in a similar situation to the one I am in now!
