Hey, Mom! Mom! Can You Hear Me? I’m Crying Over Here!
I’m not crying …yet!
My baby fought sleep—hard. I’d hold him, bounce him, rock him… after an hour, when I was at my wits end, I’d even cry with him. As a first-time mom, I felt so overwhelmed.
I knew I had to figure it out, so I relied on a process of trial and error to determine what my baby needed. Was he sleepy? Hungry? Or maybe he needed a new diaper?
With my second baby my mindset shifted in such a natural and organic way. I was so much more confident, and picked up on what the cries meant faster. I didn’t feel the need to pick my second son up at the drop of a hat, because sometimes I got stuck helping my other kid use the potty, or I was making dinner, or doing any number of other things.
Its never easy to hear your baby cry, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed, but babies don’t need much in the beginning–just food, sleep, diaper changes, and cuddles… lots and lots of cuddles.
