My lo is 15 months old, I'm very selective about what I say no to, he's so into everything that I'd just end up saying it all day otherwise! For example, I let him empty the nappy stacker or put my make up in the dirty laundry basket but when he's finished he then has to put the nappies back and retrieve my eyeshadows! He finds this just as much fun! He gets a no for pulling the leaves on my plant, he always smiles and laughs so I move him away and he then has a paddy-it'll sink in one day! I offer an explanation too-pulling the leaves hurts the plant.
I think it's perfectly normal for then to find 'no' amusing, they'll understand one day though! I admit that I lost my temper once, I can't remember what over but I shouted 'no' and he burst out crying-i've never done it before or since but at least I know that if a situation was ever serious and he was in danger he'd stop x

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
