My LO is 19 months old and me and his dad share access due to me needing to work full time. Plus he goes to a childminder 3 days a week. I am strict with his night routine and put him to bed at 7pm. I have just bought him a CD player for his room so he can listen to audio stories at bedtime. He doesn't like reading with me or learning but does it for his dad. He is now crying in his room and I just feel like a useless mum.
He can talk but is reluctant, he is crying a lot at the moment and throwing lots of tantrums. I feel like I am doing everything wrong. Having a tearful moment not knowing what's right
My LO is younger than yours and isn't a fan of reading books, he brings them to me, I read a page and then he's bored!
With the crying at bedtime, is this a regular thing? Have you tried staying with him until he is calm or the sleep separation technique?
There is no instruction manual when it comes to babies and being a mum is the hardest job in the world, you have to just do what you feel is right and do what you can. Maybe he's going through a growth spurt at the moment and learning lots of new things, that can often make them fractious.
Looking at your ticker, is there any chance that you're feeling a little hormonal at the moment? At 7 weeks pregnant, all I did was cry!! I cried one day because it rained and I couldn't put my washing out!! Nothing in your post screams out "bad mummy" to me! Have a bath and some rest and give yourself a big hug xxx
