I have been reluctant to post this as I fear everyone will think I’m mad! But it’s making me really anxious (I do suffer anxiety and am currently awaiting CBT)
My GS is now just over 8 months. He’s reaching his milestones albeit slightly later than DD friends babies.
He has always slept like a dream. He’s so contented and passive.
My DD’s were not like him at all (although DD2 - GS Mum was more content than her sister)
They certainly never slept so well and were often fussy and irritable.
GS was unwell last week and it was barely noticeable! He slept a bit more, wasn’t as smiley, and felt warm. These were the only indications that he was in fact running a high temperature.
Even being unwell, he wasn’t overly fussy.
This weekend his other grandparents looked after him and said to DD that they had never looked after such an easy, contented baby.
Now, I’m sure most grandparents wouldn’t consider this being a problem - but I have all sorts going round in my head.
I worry that there’s something wrong with him i.e Autism (my nephew is autistic and I can remember my sister saying he was a ‘text book baby’), or that he’ll be developmentally delayed.
I’m pretty sure I am being irrational and that I will be told to enjoy him being such a joy. But I just cannot shake off this fear
It probably doesn’t help that they realised the placenta was failing when DD had an emergency c section for severe pre eclampsia (a previous post back in August where I was stressed out again!)
Can anyone reassure me that they had really contented babies who grew up to be fine please?
