While the seige is on, however, do whatever you have to do- bribe your husband, hire a baby-sitter, start therapy- to keep the wear and tear on you bearable. Learn, too, that it is completely all right to set the baby in the bassinette or crib for a few minutes while trying to drown out the noise with the running water of a hot shower.. Clearly, your presence alone is not his cure but rather his reassurance, and you can only fulfill that need day after day if your carve out some time to blow off steam yourself.
Most important, try not to let a colicky baby set the mood for your home. It's so easy to be cranky to callers, snippy with your mate, and pessimistic about parenting in general when there is so much discomfort and unhappiness emanating froom one tiny baby.
- wow, that was optimistic...
