You sound as if you are the end of your tether. You do not say how old your baby is. In any case I am very concerned about her and about you.Does her father help you with managing her and keeping her busy?You really need to take her to a paediatrician for a full evaluation as her behaviour is so uncharacteristic of an infant or toddler.
