HELP! They are crying A LOT! - Page 2

post #21 of 24
I don't want anyone to feel attacked and I certainly didn't mean to give advice that isn't helpful.

((((((((())))) I remember that age it was the toughest!! I had one bouncy and one exersauser and one swing. All that helped. Two other things I didnt' see mentioned are
(1) do you have any friends with older children (4+) you can steal? Even the ones too little to hold babies were great at doing silly faces, waving toys, etc. Plus if my friend came I got some company.
(2) I discovered quite by accident at that age my kids started to love going to the park. We have a toddler park a few minutes up the road and I could push the stroller there, park them, and sit behind the girls on a bench and read for an hour while they watched the action.

Good luck

I second the older child trick. My DS (almost 5 now) was extreemly high need as a baby....well, for about 2 years. Now with DD (13 mos) he dances and sings for her.....reads her books, all kinds of entertaining things. I always say that I wish I would have had one of him for him! She is a very happy and easy baby but he is sure nice to have around when she is fussy. So I think the suggestion to have over older kids for playdates is a fantastic idea.....good one And good luck to you. With all of the attention in the world (SAHM, 1st baby, freshly moved away from family so ALL of my attnetion was focused on DS) DS still cried a lot. The best advice I got from a caring lactation consultant was, you can't always make them stop crying, you can just be there for them while they are going through it. Remember that when they are having a hard time, you are right there for them and if their needs are more than your two hands can provide at the moment, they are still going to have better lives because you are there and caring about their crying. It gets easier!!
