Babies do wake and cry for a myriad of reasons. The first thing to do is to put the issue in perspective and remain calm and the answers will come. Some babies sleep well, eat well, are happy all of the time, but not all babies are going to maintain all three constantly (despite what some tell you!).
There is so much support, but if you are feeling emotional, maybe talk to other experts, rather than other perfect mums!! You are the best person to know the answers or seek them because you spend the most time with your baby.
Babies do read us and our emotions – so if life is a bit of a challenge for you – then the baby may be responding to this too. Is there something you can do to feel better about whatever is going on?
Having a baby is about bringing a little person in to our routine of life and teaching them what we know. Everyone has their own ideas and if being loving and caring with consistency and routine is what you are doing – it sounds great.
If you are a book person – go to the library and look at the resources there. If you like to talk about issues – book into see your health professional. Do what will help you find the answers you are looking for.
It is important to do your research because a baby is complex and just knowing that, moving house, or going on holidays or a different cot, colder weather, growth spurts, teething, sickness and so many more factors, play a role in an unsettled baby, is vital.
