So this time around, I need advice about a situation with Bestie.
Here’s the dillema as I see it:
Little Man is a “titty baby” in every way possible. He wants his mommas boob and nothing else. This is wearing Bestie out. She home schools Turkey and there are days that Little Man makes this damn near impossible.
That being said, I also feel that Bestie is half responsible for perpetuating this. She allows him to use her as a pacifier, she picks him up at any little fuss, she takes him from Loud Mouth, me or anyone else holding him when he first starts to fuss. She complained to me about Loud Mouth not bonding with Little Man… but from what I saw, she doesn’t allow him to. She never even let me try and soothe him, except for when she was in the shower and didn’t know he was fussing. How can Loud Mouth (or anyone else) soothe him and bond when she takes him away to pop the boob in his mouth?
So, I was wondering:
1. Why is Little Man like this? So clingy to her? Are her actions doing this?
2. How can I approach her about this without sounding “too intrusive”? Or should I say anything at all?
3. If I do speak to her about it, what options (if any) should I suggest to help Little Man not be so clingy?
