What did I miss, why are you laid up if you don't mind me asking.. As for Connor has his routine been thrown off? Kids are creatures of habit, or he could just be hitting his terrible twos waaaay early?? Either way I hope he settles back down soon.
Girls, Connor has been SO BAD the past few days. I don't know if he's reacting to mommy being laid up or not sleeping with me or what, but I'm pulling my hair out.
He's been biting me for awhile, which is its own thread, but never to be mean-always like he was just giving me a high five- lol.. but the past few days, he's been biting me to be mean. He'll bite deep and hard, even drawing blood. When I try to discipline him, he'll hit me. He hit me so hard earlier, my glasses flew off. He'll grab handfuls of my hair and pull, he grabbed my cheeks so hard, he pinched my skin and left fingerprints on my face. He's not listening to ANYTHING I say, almost like "hah-what are YOU going to do about it?!"
Hopefully you ladies won't judge me, but we've tried everything. I've told him be nice, shown him be nice, yelped, told him that we don't bite/hit/etc, I've told him no, I bit him back, I pinched him back, I tapped his mouth (obviously didn't hit/bite/pinch him too hard-hes barely one!). We put him in his pack n play as a form of time out. I've tried ignoring him.
I don't know what else to do?!
Noah was doing the same thing a few weeks ago and finally stopped.... Nothing I did worked except for sitting him down and telling him biting isn't nice but Id say it a little serious and he'd get the pouty face and hug me... He stopped ... His new thing is throwing everything... And if he throws it he loses it ( a ball is diff but a block being thrown at someone's face is what I'm talking about) .. Noahs def into his terrible twos early
I wonder if he is acting up because of the discomfort and pain from the diaper rash? I know that if I am in pain or discomfort I can get pretty snarky with people. I hope that both of you guys start to feel better soon!
I would say that it's because you arent able to do as much with him an he doesn't understand... I would just keep telling him no and not nice and he'll eventually get it. I know it's hard...but just keep up with it.
Oh honey, i'm sure it's a reaction to you being laid up. Tom's 4 and we've just been through the same thing with him whilst I was in hospital. He acted WAY out of character, angry, aggressive, fighting with his daddy and misbehaving/disobeying constantly. He is Mr Chill usually, so it was really strange behaviour. He was like it the whole time I was in hospital and the first day I was home. But now he's back to his normal self. He's probably cross that mummy isn't there in the same way, able to do the same things and is almost 'blaming you'. Tom was like this, but it was his daddy he blamed for me not being there... all his anger was directed at daddy.
He was so confused at the new situation he found himself in and didn't know how to express his feelings, or ask the questions that were in his little head so it all came out as frustration. I'm sure it's the same with Connor. Plus, don't forget, he's just a baby and babies are constantly learning their boundaries, testing, pushing is the only they can learn right from wrong. Every baby goes through this stage and most will hit, bite, kick, punch and test you to your limits as they are learning what they can and can't get away with. Stay strong, remain constant and talk to him. He will be fine. P.S. - hope your ankle gets better soon! x
