Can it be because she is teething?"
When you speak to people who are concerned about the same things... And have hopes and dreams that are similar to yours... You can speak to them for hours.
And that is exactly what happens when I start talking to the Morisons Baby Dreams (@morisonsbabydreams)
Our conversations about doing something to help pregnant couples and new parents stretch into hours 🙂
During one such conversation... We were talking about how, several times when babies are crying, they are actually making a bid for our attention.
So for example, parents ask me.. "My one year old is behaving very strangely nowadays and throwing a lot of tantrums. Can it be because she is teething?"
It is always easier to link obvious things. And that is why teething and bad behavior, both of which are very visible, are usually linked.
Teething may be uncomfortable, but what really causes the crying and tantrums is the need to be "included" and "engaged with"
Our conversation that day ended with us excitedly planning a video series with some ideas on how to engage with babies in the first year.
I am sharing the video for parents of 11/12 month olds.
This is the last video in the series.
Do watch the rest of the series on the social media platforms of Morisons Baby Dreams(@morisonsbabydreams). And share it with new parents you may know.
