Every week I talk with parents of infants who are questioning their ability to parent effectively. Even experienced parents can be totally befuddled by baby #2. There are many reasons for this. Too much information, too little information, inappropriate information, know-it-all relatives information, perfect friend information or being just plain tired can really mess with the parenting part of your brain.
Listen up, parents. Watch your baby, not the computer monitor. Your baby is human and so are you. Trust your instincts. Seek positive support. Try things more than once. Work as a team. Simply and totally love your screaming, spitting, not sleeping, pooping, hitting baby. You can do it!
