The Baby that Cries
The Baby that Cries --Dr. Ann Croghan, PT, DPT, CLC, CAPP-OB certified My first child. She was so easy that she left me thinking that I was an amazing parent. She wasn't an "easy baby".... I was just amazing. I would put her in a Boba wrap and go out to dinner, go to concerts, take hikes. My second child. He cried. He cried so much that my first child thought that his favorite song was "True Colors" from Trolls: "you with the sad eyes, don't be discouraged. I can't remember when I last saw you laughing". Saddest. Thing. Ever. Around 3:00pm he would start the " Purple Crying ". I tried to head it off. I would nurse him, wrap him in the Boba, walk him, sing to him, leave him in a safe space, take warm baths with him. He wasn't a "difficult baby"..... I just sucked. Our family stopped going to Friday Afternoon Club and Thursday's in the Park. One wrong move in bed and he would wake up screaming.
