Anyone else think they may have a high needs baby?


I've started to realize that our baby may be a "high needs" baby. The signs were always there but I guess I assumed that high needs meant something closer to colicky. But after a lot of research and hearing from other parents I think I just missed it because of my compulsive nature and needing to be perfect until I (inevitably) breakdown. Now that I am looking back at some of the things I am constantly doing do to keep my baby entertained and calm to avoid even a little fussiness I realize he is actually extremely demanding and has been since day 1.

Anyone else dealing with this? I'm looking into potential support groups in my area because I have really reached my limit dealing with this without any family or friends to help.
