Does anyone elses baby cry just to blackmail them? Or do all babies do it? Emma has started to gurn for no reason, and I know she is faking it as I said to her a few times you wee faker - in a friendly voice - and she stops, looks at me and smiles and laughs then starts talking to me. It's not like I ignore her tho.........i spend a lot of time with her, maybe that's why she does it? Just that it is becoming VERY annoying as I cant get anything done as OH will take her now and then but basically I do it all - baby stuff, cooking, cleaning, washing etc etc...........and now I have hurt my back so I cant carry her v well so during the day she has to stay were she is for a while and so she just cries louder and louder. It's drivingme potty ad I have had a migrane for 5 days as every night she gurns for 4 or 5 hours if she is not given undivided attention - evenhad the neighbours below bang on the ceiling but I don't want to be picking her up each time she cries.
