I’ve read a lot of books in preparation of having the baby and since she’s been born, I’ve read LOTS of stuff to try and make this transition to a little family easy for us and easy for her. Not until I received a package from Ryan’s cousin and his wife (parents of ADORABLE twins) via his Aunt Susie did I find a book that I could actually see “working” on Georgia.
I’m becoming a baby whisperer! This book, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, is fabulous! The author gives concrete signals you can take in from your baby and teaches you how to “read” what they are wanting or needing. In the past 48 hours (and I’m on page 125!) I learned that a lot of time when we were feeding Georgia, she was just overtired, which explains a lot of the spitting up – she was TOO full. And when I have her nap during the day, taking her to her room instead of having her sleep down here with the laptop keys, me on the phone and the tv on makes her much happier when she wakes up. Little things that have made a big difference!
The author also teaches you how to discern their cries by listening to them and the pitch, but I’m not good at that yet….but I’m working on it!
Thanks Jimmy and Rachel!
