A few months ago I received an email from a new mom who was having some challenges. She had seen a post of mine on the colic forum I follow. She was at her wits end. I sent her this email with all of the tricks and education I’d learned and earned in the last five years.
I know there are new moms out there right now who are grasping at straws and seeking help. Newborns are a challenge unlike any other you will encounter in your entire life. For the first six weeks, they wake up crying. It’s just developmental. But who knows that unless you meet some awesome person who educates you? Compound ignorance and inexperience with fatigue and you’re one hot mess.
