I spoke to a frustrated mama last week who had a pickle of a problem on her hands.
She’s a married single mom (husband travels 90% of the time) which leaves her alone with her 3 kids A LOT.
Between juggling the activities of her older kids (4 and 7) she’s constantly on the go and her 3 month old baby spends much of his time enjoying the view from his carseat.
Her baby would fuss (like many do), she would give him his binky and all would be right with the world. Then the strangest thing began to happen.
She’d give him the binky and he’d scream louder. And I mean gut wrenching, blood curdling, I need ear plugs kinda screams.
So one day while they were out on an errand, she breastfed him to quiet him down and it worked great! He was calm and quiet within seconds.
But then all his wanted was the boob. All day. Every night.
Wake up. Drink. Sleep. Drink. Fuss. Drink.
So I said to her, “It’s like he has a drinking problem.”
And she responded, “YESSS! And it’s time for an intervention!”
In today’s episode discover three easy ways to close the BAR–especially if you suspect your baby has a drinking problem.
Here’s your quick recap:
- Close all the night buffet. It’s time for your boobs to have regular business hours and my BAR system can help you do it.
- Get reinforcements. Call your hubby (or maybe your BFF) getting your baby to STTN is more fun with friends.
- Follow through. Once you implement steps 1 & 2, it’s time take action. And if this step is the hardest one for you….
I can help with that!
