15-02-18: Advice for a New Mum

Thursday 15th February 2018

Here is my reply to a new mum who is fretting that her 3 week old cries whenever she is left in a cot by herself and not with or on her…

Mummà, every single one of us experiences their newborn crying wanting our closeness! As to what to do about it, it really is a very individual route you’ll take. As a new mum I found I had within me the attitude that the baby just wanted me to feel safe…so that’s what I did: Kept Kingsley close to me. As did Erroll my husband. We wore Kingsley, napped with him, boobed day and night, slept together. He didn’t cry thereafter. He was a bonny baby and now 4 years of age.
