Don't pick up your baby as soon as they start crying
Let them cry and they will learn to selfsoothe
If you pick them up they will get spoilt
Have you been told this by well meaning friends and relatives?
It is one of the Commonest myths about babies.
ALWAYS pick your baby up when they cry
NEVER leave them to cry
Babies cry when they need something
It is the only way they can communicate
If you respond immediately and try your best to try and understand their need and fulfill it
Or at least stay close to them until they calm down
They will grow up to be calm and confident knowing that you are always there for them.
And they will cry less and less.
I teach all this and much more in my prenatal classes so that parents don't do the wrong things Because of the myths around parenting
Did you attend a prenatal class?
I would love to know in comments
