I have to start off and say that life with a 2 month old is exhausting but fun all at the same time. But when the crying starts so does the stress. I can’t help but wonder why can’t I soothe her at times. I’ll try about anything. I’ll try the shushing method, swinging, sucking, and the swaddling ( which this one does work at times ). When all of this doesn’t work I resort to a method most parents may not like and that is letting her just cry it out. Of course I check the monitor to see if she’s ok and all but she does need to learn to self soothe. This method won’t only come in handy at night but it does when she wakes up from a nap. That way she can try to fall back asleep. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t, but self soothing is something that I would like for her to learn to do. Are there any other moms out there that do this?
