Ways To Deal With Colic Baby
To have a baby with colic has never been that easy. And it is normal and common to harbor some feelings of anger and resentment toward your cranky little thing. Of course, You are not a bad parent because your feelings turned a little dark and sour in the bad moments. Do not feel guilty that you have these feelings. We all do.
But if you think your anger could get out of control and you could actually harm, shake, or strike your baby, get help right immediately. Place your baby in a safe place, like the crib, and leave the room. See if your spouse or a friend or a neighbor can be with your baby while you get some space. Or bring your baby to his pediatrician and discuss your worries about losing your control and temper.
Some strategies to help you survive this tough battle
- Try to take a break! If you’ve tried everything and your little baby is still crying away, it’s perfectly fine to put him to bed and let him continue to cry for a while without you interfering.
- Allow others to care for your baby while you do something completely frivolous for yourself . Get out of the house do some of what you’ve accustomed to do, just normal living.
