"I love how much positive insight you gave us into a baby's crying. "
A to-be-grandmom tells me as I end my prenatal class that she was attending with her daughter and son-in-law.
"When I was a new mom - My babies used to cry ALL THE TIME!!
And I received so much flak for it.
I still cannot forget after 28 years how I was made to feel like a bad mom because my babies cried.
I was dreading going through the same with my daughter and her baby.
But after listening to your explanation of the physiology of crying.
Why it is essential.
And why it does not mean that the baby has a bad mom.
I feel so relieved and confident.
I wish I had attended a class like this.
But it's alright. At least my daughter has."
From the first time a baby starts crying - mothers are flooded with unnecessary guilt.
And this guilt keeps increasing as the days go by - finally compelling moms to shelve their dreams and aspirations and live a wounded life.
Don't allow this to happen.
Always attend a prenatal class that helps you understand your baby and their crying.
