Isn’t this the saddest face you’ve ever seen?
C has taken to screaming like it’s the end of the world/someone is torturing him whenever we drive to day care in the morning. I don’t know what gives. There are only a couple of things that calm him down:
(a) a rousing rendition of the itsy bitsy spider sung by yours truly over and over (and woe to me if I stop); and
(b) reaching back with my right hand and messing with his hanging monkey on his car seat (oh so safe while I’m trying to drive with my left hand, I know).
The other time C has a major meltdown is during diaper changes. This is a recent (annoying) development. If you even think of laying him down on his back in the diaper changing area, it’s like def con 5 style freaking out. I mean, it sounds like he’s being wounded. He doesn’t have diaper rash or any other physical reason for screaming. I just don’t know what to do.
Anyone have any experience with this? Any pearls of wisdom to impart upon me? Please?
