I agree with you... it's basically one day at a time... but what I think - and that's why I asked this question - is that there are not that many babies that cry more than they are supposed to. You know that sort of thing when it's crying all day ...
Trust me I know the sort! All day and most of the night. Not sure on the statistics for everyone else but 2 out of 3 of mine cried more than they should even when being held.
I'm also a firm believer in attachment parenting. All the holding and cuddling did nothing for my 2 who had colic. I still held them but all the holding, nursing, rocking, and love didn't stop the colic!
Colic is a trial. Neither of my kids had that. Wish they could truly figure out what causes that. That is when having help is critical so mom can get a break but baby's needs are still lovingly attended to even if there is no explanation.
I'm talking about a different kind of crying and it has not to do with what you do for the baby or how much you hold him. I'm talking about crying for no reason, always, after you have done all you could... Only 20 % of babies are like that.
Hi, win-winresources, I agree with you totally. My twins are 4 now, that time has come and gone, but my girl was a challenge. I'm trying to get views on the subject for other parents, for you only know what it is about, if your baby was like that.
I completly disagree with the first half of this answer. At an early age a baby should be taken care of every time they are needed. Teaching is for children old enough to understand what's going on!
