A MUST HAVE for new moms

19 May

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!

    You're very welcome. I'm glad you guys could get the same thing from it that we did. It helped us so much, and I'm just sorry that we didn't get it to you earlier. It was also one of the few books I read that Jimmy liked as well. After he read it he felt much more involved, and it was really cute to see him jump in and take control when one of the babies cried. It really turned things around and gave us time to appreciate the little things that a lot of parents miss out on because their too busy dealing with a screaming baby. I hope you guys have fun getting to know Georgia's personality. Love you guys and can't wait to see you all in July.

    P.S. Jimmy says to make sure Ryan reads it too. (OR ELSE)
