Welcome to Channel Mum Support Groups. A place to be with other mums where you can feel safe to have a little more open ‘mum’ conversation.
Do you have a set store that you buy from every year, without fail?
Sounds like this could well be a developmental leap. Have you seen or heard of the wonderweeks app? It’s a great tool to help you know when they will have a ‘leap’ in their development. This leads to them not sleeping as well etc it will tell you when to expect them, why and how long they last which can be a huge help as it’s been like light at the end of the tunnel.
Other than that babies can just develop new patterns and usually it just takes time, patience and some love to get them to settle again.
Sleep deprivation is so so hard and my sympathies go to you but it will pass and I’d suspect it’ll do so very soon.
I’ve spoken to you on the group my love and I just want to say again how you most definitely did the right thing by reporting it.
Its not something a child just comes up with and his behaviour and personality change along side that would really make me believe his grandfather has been inappropriate.
What is do what to say is that you’re not in any way at fault. You didn’t know. You trusted someone and had no reason not to until now so please, I know you’ll be a bit messed up and this will hurt you, do know that you are not to blame. You did nothing wrong. You didn’t knowingly let this happen and you’re not responsible for others actions.
Abusers are so good at what they do. They manipulate and most of the time we don’t even know they are doing it. It’s also very normal for kids to struggle and such with school or Just growing so his changes would not normally make anyone think anything bad was happening. And you did everything right. You are there for your son and you are taking the right steps to investigate and find out what’s happened. You are amazing to me even if you don’t feel it yourself. And we’ve all got you.
Sending so much love.
I'm new here. I saw the ladies on This Morning talking about extreme thoughts and think I have it too. Since having my son 14 moths ago I seem to be avoiding people and places that I never would before. Before my little one I was super laid back, chilled out, brushed anything off that didn't have a positive impact on my life, although suffering from panic and anxiety for a while, I came through that once I found my partner and stability. One day I decided out of nowhere I wanted a baby so we got to it straight away, unfortunately we lost our first due to miscarriage which was a massive stab to the heart but I knew that I desperately wanted a baby after that. Thankfully my little miracle came along ( I have polycystic ovaries and endometriosis) and he changed my life in every way. He is literally my world in every sense :)
So now I have this vulnerable beautiful little bundle of absolute joy I'm absolutely petrified of anything happening to him. You hear sooooo many horror stories on the news and social media everyday and they always stick in my head.
The only time I feel completely safe is at home when he's with me. I recently read about a certain group of people snatching babies and toddlers in supermarkets when their parents are distracted and this has terrified me :( I don't even want to go there now. I also have a fear of dogs now which is ridiculous as Iv always loved dogs but now they are a massive threat to my baby I don't want to be around them. Even dogs in my family.
Does anyone else feel unsafe everywhere they go?? It's exhausting :( xx
Hi, I'm after some tips and advice on the 4 month sleep regression. My son will be 5 months this week and is waking up about once every hour and a half. He started sleeping through the night quite early on (about 8 / 10 weeks) which I know is very lucky, but for this past 5 weeks has been getting progressively worse. Is there anything I can be doing to help him get back into his routine of sleeping through again? He wakes up crying and can be settled with a dummy and Ewan the sheep but it's exhausting having all this broken sleep and it makes him tired too. Any tips would be greatly appreciated, thank you x
