this is for a friend. A young mother, first baby. Never thought she would be a mother, but what a mother she is now! She is very gentle, caring, loving. And she got nothing from this herself
Now, her problem. Her five month old son does not want to sleep. At the moment he get only upset and cries and cries, and won't sleep at all. (I mean, obviously he sleeps a bit, but it's totally exhausting for everybody).
It's daytime and nighttime sleep.
She tried holding him, she sleeps in one bed with him, she carried him, bounced him, did play sounds. Nothing helps.
I told her: This too shall pass. And tried to give her all my mommy wisdom. But maybe someone out there has a great idea.
Thank you so much.
