Does Your Baby Have A Drinking Problem?

Does Your Baby Have A Drinking Problem

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.

Tried everything and your baby still won’t sleep? Watch this!

I’m curious…

Have you read a ton of books looking for the “magic” solution for your baby’s sleep…or maybe searched Google for answers?

If so, you’re not alone.  

Exhausted parents all over the world have done the same because quite frankly no one likes waking up at 3 am to a screaming baby.

Maybe you’ve even asked friends for help and have been told…

Some babies just don’t sleep through the night. [Insert random example here of how their child didn’t sleep through the night]

Many times after you’ve done your research, you leave more confused than when you started.  

Which leads to more frustration and more sleepless nights.  Ugh! More

Baby Crying: What’s Normal and What’s Not

 

Baby Crying:  What's Normal, What's Not

 

For new parents, the sound of a baby crying can be heartbreaking – and occasionally frustrating. Many first-time parents are shocked by how frequently their babies cry. But crying is your baby’s way of communicating with you. Since she can’t talk, she has to cry when she needs something or wants to share feelings with you. This means that crying isn’t always a sign that something’s wrong; indeed, if your baby cries, it means she’s communicating and developing normally. If you’re like most parents and find yourself worrying, though, here’s what you need to know about babies and crying.

Baby Sleep Myths Busted: Never Wake A Sleeping Baby

Never Wake A Sleeping Baby

Welcome to the fourth installment in my 5 part baby sleep myth series.  Today’s topic is sure to raise of couple of eyebrows.  Rightly so. For so long we’ve been told to let our children sleep. I remember when I was younger hearing some of the older ladies in church telling the new moms to let their babies sleep no matter what. “Never wake a sleeping baby”, they would say. “Or you’ll have a mess on your hands!” And who were they to argue? They were new mothers looking for advice desperately wanting to avoid the sleep deprivation horror stories they’d heard so many times before.

Baby Sleep Myths Busted: Good Sleepers

 

Baby Sleep Myths Busted:  Good Sleepers

Welcome to the second installment in my 5 part baby sleep myth series.  Last time we talked about why keeping your baby up all day WILL NOT help them sleep better at night.  Today let’s talk about good vs. bad sleepers.  I just want to go on record and say that I don’t like labels.  Labels have a tendency to make some people feel really good about themselves while making others feel real yucky inside.  And when it comes to babies and sleep, these labels can make parents feel inadequate.  Even guilty.  Some even start playing the blame game and point the finger at themselves saying their the reason why their baby isn’t sleeping.
